									                                NON-MEDICAL INCIDENT POLICY


POLICY:         The Van Buren/Cass District Health Department has developed this policy
in order to track the various non-medical incidents that may occur in the workplace to
establish if any pattern(s) exist. These reports are reviewed annually by the Safety
Committee. If a safety issue is found, recommendations to correct the problem will be
reported to Administration for approval and/or guidance.

PROCEDURES: All non-medical incidents that involve an employee and/or client
must be reported to the Administrative Assistant and/or supervisor as soon as possible so
proper forms and procedures can be carried out.

Forms can be obtained by contacting the Administrative Assistant’s office, make copies
of forms located at the front desk of every facility, or downloading forms off our web
site.

Completed forms, along with any correspondence, police reports, etc. should be
forwarded to the Administrative Assistant’s office. The Administrative Assistant will
annually share this information with the Safety Committee. The Safety Committee will
evaluate the outcomes and make recommendations as needed to the Health
Officer/Administrator.

Examples of when the non-medical incident form should be used are as follows:

Theft
Threats against personnel
Confiscation of contraband
Confiscation of weapons
Any disturbance where a safety officer was contacted
Harassment
Aggressive behavior
Verbal attacks
Property Damage
Stalking

You are encouraged to fill out these forms whenever an incident occurs. These forms are
kept confidential and no one will be reprimanded for filing a non-medical incident.
