Safety Urged After Traumatic Brain Injury Incident

San Francisco, California – The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution urging Sutter Health’s California Pacific Medical Center (CPMC) to bolster safety protocols in light of recent events. 

The resolution was fueled by a psychiatry resident’s assault, resulting in a traumatic brain injury. It emphasizes the need for enhanced workplace security measures for medical staff and patients.

The incident involving Dr. Dani Golomb, who suffered a concussion and a traumatic brain injury after being assaulted while on duty at a CPMC campus, has sparked significant concern. The Board of Supervisors, in a letter to CPMC executives, stressed the importance of addressing safety concerns comprehensively.

Board President Aaron Peskin emphasized the essential role of OSHA enforcement in ensuring transparency and accountability within hospital networks regarding assault incidents. The resolution aligns with ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of healthcare workers, particularly in high-risk environments such as psychiatric units.

In response, Sutter Health acknowledged the concerns raised and highlighted ongoing reviews of security practices. The hospital system has committed to enhancing security measures, including round-the-clock security presence in critical care units.

The incident underscores the critical need for robust workplace safety protocols, especially in healthcare settings where staff and patient well-being are paramount.
