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

We are approaching the home stretch in Trenton.  There are just a few more days in early January before the 2-year session comes to the end and we start a new legislative session where all the bills are introduced and start from scratch.  I will run a full report of all NJ-ACEP monitored bills that were signed into law in January and bills that NJ-ACEP successfully opposed.  Most notably, the bills dealing with Out of Network is, at this point, stalled.  We fully expect this debate to continue into the new legislative session in 2016.  For now, please note the following current actions of interest:

This is the first newsletter since ACEP15 in Boston which saw a record number of registrants.  NJ-ACEP had a wonderful reception at the Smith & Wollensky castle- and reason to celebrate following my election to the ACEP Board of Directors.  I am very excited with the opportunity to represent New Jersey's concerns.
