Abstract

With the aging population, home healthcare is rapidly expanding — but worker protections must expand as well to protect employees who may be vulnerable to violence. A recent citation by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration underscores this point, as a company that provides pediatric home health was issued a willful citation and fined $98,000 following the sexual assault of a healthcare worker.
