Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 55612-55613 [2017-25313]

Download as PDF 55612 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 22, 2017 / Notices all nonfatal assaults occurring in private industry are experienced in healthcare. Six states have enacted laws to reduce violence against healthcare workers by requiring workplace violence prevention programs. However, little is understood about how effective these laws are in reducing violence against healthcare workers. The long-term goal of the proposed project is to reduce violence against healthcare workers. The objective of the proposed study is: (1) To examine nursing home compliance with the New Jersey Violence Prevention in Health Care Facilities Act, and (2) to evaluate the effectiveness of the regulations in this Act in reducing assault injuries to Violence Prevention Committees in 20 nursing homes (10 in New Jersey and 10 in Virginia) who are in charge of overseeing compliance efforts. The purpose of the interviews is to measure compliance to the state regulations: Violence prevention policies, reporting systems for violent events, violence prevention committee, written violence prevention plan, violence risk assessments, post incident response and violence prevention training. A contractor will conduct the interviews. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated burden hours are 40. nursing home workers. Our central hypothesis is that nursing homes with high compliance with the regulations will have lower rates of employee violence-related injury. Previously under this OMB Control number, NIOSH received OMB approval to evaluate the legislation at 50 hospitals and at 40 nursing homes, to conduct a nurse survey, and to conduct a home healthcare aide survey (HHCAS). NIOSH completed the data collection activities for the hospitals, the nurse survey, and the HHCAS. However, NIOSH only completed 20 out of 40 nursing home interviews. NIOSH seeks to conduct face-to-face interviews with the Chairs of the ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Average burden per response (in hours) Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Total burden (in hours) Type of respondents Form name Nursing Home Administrators ...........
