Safety in the Correctional Setting - DEMO



Safety is a primary objective in the correctional setting. All staff members, whether healthcare, correctional, or support staff, should have personal safety and the safety of other team members in mind when performing job functions. Indeed, in a secure setting, safety must take precedence over therapy or treatment goals. Workplace violence, particularly violence from patients, is a main concern for correctional healthcare staff. Likewise, a safety mindset will also help maintain patient safety. This module will cover key safety principles for working in a correctional setting.


After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the personal and environmental safety principles for working in a correctional setting.
  2. Explain the concepts of under and over involvement in patient relationships.
  3. List examples of professional boundary violations common in the correctional setting.
  4. Outline effective responses to manipulation and patient anger during patient interactions in a correctional setting.
Requirements for success completion are to view the chapter videos, answer the case scenario questions, and complete each chapter’s review question. A final exam must be completed. You may find the “final” exam under the Take My Test tab. A score of 80% or higher is needed to pass the course. After a successful test score, please complete the Course Evaluation then you may print your Certificate of Completion.
