EMS and Fire

Increase Safety, Improve Care

Conflict between and among administration, emergency professionals, caregivers, patients,  and their families occurs when there is an emotional reaction to a disagreement. Poorly managed conflict is enviable within any emergency setting and leads leads to…

  • Disrespect
  • Bullying
  • Emotional/physical violence
  • Caregiver and victim injuries

…resulting in…

  • Inability among staff to effectively respond to patients in crisis
  • Revenue loss
  • Patient and family complaints
  • Reduced staff performance
  • Reduced employee performance
  • Liability / Litigation
  • Lack of a commitment to a company’s vision
  • Injuries / Profit loss
  • Employees saying and doing things that destroy self-esteem and reputations
  • And, in rare situations, even lives
