(From the February 2016 Issue of MedStat)
Code Violet is the hospital’s response to violent and/or combative persons when they pose a threat to self and/or others. Harm can come from patients, parents, families and even employees. One of the biggest challenges with managing difficult behavior is the struggle to balance our family centered care approach with the proper response. Please see the Code Violet insert for more information including how to activate a Code Violet.
