Reporting is a key component of any plan to address violence and allows for issues to be investigated and appropriate action to be taken. With this in mind, we would expect a plan to address violence and aggression in health care to require:
- The implementation of a structured process to investigate incidents in a consultative and collaborative manner;
- Health services to demonstrate clear and relevant action over incidents; and
- Health services to have a collaborative relationship with SA Police that assists staff to pursue their right to prosecution of offenders in a supportive manner.
