The settlement requires the facility to take steps to prevent workplace violence.
Bergen agreed to make improvements to its healthcare workplace violence prevention program and to submit verification by July 1. The program includes employee training, notification to employees on policies and procedures for reporting of violence incidents, post-incident review and hazard evaluation.
