WHAT IS A “CODE WHITE?”
Any violence in a healthcare workplace falls under a Code White in most hospitals. It does not just apply to the patients. Clearly, not all people in a hospital are patients. Some are staff, others visitors or family and friends.
The term is simply a code to tell hospital employees that there is violence or a potential for violence within the hospital. This is similar to say a Code Blue where someone is in medical distress, or other codes that mean other things
IS THIS “CODE WHITE” TRAINING FOR THE PURPOSES OF WORKING IN A HOSPITAL?
Yes. This is the academic portion of the Code White and Restraint Training Program for use in Ontario Hospitals however it is becoming very popular with clinics and other types of healthcare settings.
DO SECURITY GUARDS NEED THIS ADDITIONAL TRAINING TO BE DEPLOYED TO A HOSPITAL? IS IT MANDATORY?
The Ministry of Health and Ministry of Labour released a report in 2018 with recommendations for training for all persons working on the frontline in healthcare.
There is a specific section of this lengthy report that applies to security guards including mandatory training content, frequency of training and refresher programs.
This was done to ensure that hospitals comply with Ontario legislation.

WHY DO SECURITY GUARDS NEED THIS TRAINING?
The level of violence in the healthcare workplace is escalating. Security guards are first responders that are specifically trained to deal with this as a part of the Code White team in that facility.
WHAT IS INCLUDED FOR “RESTRAINT” TRAINING?
An in depth look at the legalities surrounding the authorizations to use force on patients, articulation of incidents for inquests and court purposes, as well as an in depth module on the use of passive restraints, specifically the Pinel System.
WHAT IS NVCI OR CPI? DON'T I NEED TO TAKE THIS TOO?
Crisis Prevention Institute and their Non-Violent Crisis Intervention is a copyrighted program based in the United States. While some healthcare facilities are still using it, many are not for a long list of reasons surrounding due diligence.
We only provide Canadian content vetted through Canadian courts for the academic portion.
Regards to the physical skills, Canadian and Ontario due diligence and “least restraint” best practices dictate specific techniques and skill sets that are acceptable and some that are not.
Coroner's inquests recommendations are also taken into account and followed in our programs.
