The Facts

Workplace Violence in Emergency Medicine is no doubt an epidemic. That is a FACT.

FACT: You understand, according to several studies, injuries from assaults are a leading cause for lost work hours in the fields of emergency medicine.

FACT: We understand you are concerned about the response you or your provider would use in these particularly  stressful incidents.

FACT: According to Bureau of Labor statistics, an assault on a healthcare worker is the most common source of nonfatal injury or illness requiring days off from work in the healthcare and social assistance industry. Source

OUR MISSION

To empower cultural and behavioral modification through the enforcement of exemplary customer service, reasonability, and industry best practices that yield a reduction in employer liability and culminate in an increase employee safety and security.

We achieve this mission by providing staff with the critical thinking skills to recognize a change in a relationship.

OUR FOUNDER

The Founder of the program, Kip Teitsort, having experience as a paramedic, police officer, and martial artist created EVE from purely an EMS/Healthcare origin- not some existing corrections/psych/law enforcement (continuum based) class that was modified to be an EMS/Fire/Healthcare class.  

In the years since the creation of DT4EMS, many of our now certified instructors and instructor-trainers bring decades of law enforcement, military and martial arts experience into our programs. Our instructors also have vast experience with years of Fire, EMS and hospital based patient care. This is how we know we are providing superior training for your staff.
