A new initiative at Gundersen Health System is looking
to making the building safer.
no hit zone
It's an effort to help staff handle uncomfortable
and have the tools to intervene.
The policy isn't limited to adults hitting children.
it applies to anyone hitting anyone else.
We're not trying to point fingers at people and say,
you know, 'you're a bad parent or you're a bad person.'
It's really just about making the satff more comfortable
about addressing situations that we see everyday.
The social worker hopes the staff will feel comfortable
to address similar sitatuions outside of the hospital
