HSS TEAM Training Improves Safety of SLVH Employees and Patients

San Luis Valley Health employees took part in 2 two-hour TEAM training sessions. TEAM stands for Techniques for Effective Aggression Management. The instructor-led courses taught healthcare-specific strategies and skills designed to protect staff and patients from physical attacks.

Instructor Keith Hayden, with HSS, “Safe in the Knowldege,” used hands-on exercises and simulations to build the confidence needed to use the course’s techniques in real life. For more information about HSS services, please visit
