California Regulators Probe Sutter Health for Undisclosed Assault on Psychiatry Staff Member

The implementation of effective workplace violence prevention plans heavily relies on the timely reporting of violent incidents, according to Comsti. These reports allow employees to stay informed and work with their employer to identify areas that require improvement.

Advocates, including Golomb and her colleagues, are calling for increased safety measures at Sutter Health facilities. Recently, they presented a petition to hospital management signed by over 100 psychiatry residents, fellows, and nurses. The petition outlined specific demands for 24/7 security presence in the inpatient psych unit and intensive care unit to ensure a safe working environment.

In response to these demands, Sutter Health has invested nearly $40 million in security enhancements for the unit where Golomb was attacked. Measures include the purchase of cameras, panic buttons, duress alarms, secure doors, and the hiring of a security officer to patrol the area during daylight hours. This investment demonstrates Sutter Health’s commitment to enhancing employee safety and creating a secure work environment.

Following the publication of Golomb’s story on March 8 by KQED, Sutter Health’s president and CEO, Warner Thomas, addressed hospital employees in an email titled “Keeping you safe from harm at work.” In this communication, Thomas emphasized the organization’s dedication to prioritizing employee safety and ensuring that all employees have access to a secure work environment.
