NJ-ACEP Emergency Department Violence Initiative


Violence against healthcare providers is a growing trend in our emergency departments. Many of us have accepted it as a normal part of the job; part of our culture like running a code. However, just as we are advocates for our patients' health and safety, so must we be advocates for our own safety as healthcare professionals.  NJ-ACEP is here to be your advocate, and has embarked on a mission for Emergency Department Safety. 

NJ-ACEP needs to hear your voice against workplace violence. As part of a state wide campaign to change the culture of violence, we need your personal stories of violent encounters in the emergency department. These stories will be featured anonymously in New Jersey news reports. Please contact NJ-ACEP with your interest: info@njacep.org 

Do you know someone who deserves to be recognized?
