Press Ganey releases first quality indicator to measure assaults on nurses

The performance analytics provider Press Ganey created the first quality indicator to measure assaults on nursing personnel.

The indicator is a part of the company's National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators, which aims to increase understanding about workplace safety as assaults against nurses are being reported at epidemic levels, according to Press Ganey. 

"To provide patient-centered care and be both engaged and resilient in their roles as caregivers, nurses must feel safe in their practice environment," said Christy Dempsey, MSN, Press Ganey CNO. "This indicator can help organizations prioritize workplace safety, and delivers insights needed to nurture a culture of nursing excellence."
