Course Overview: Incorporating an active shooter incident plan must now be part of every healthcare facility's agenda and emergency management plan. Healthcare facilities that are not compliant with OSHA recommendations can be held legally liable for any injuries or deaths that occur during an active shooter incident. Several lawsuits have already been filed in court that have accused the facilities of inadequate security or negligence. Active shooter events in healthcare facilities have unique challenges such as hazardous materials, including infectious disease, locked units (mental health), and a large vulnerable patient population.
