Reducing Violence and Aggression in Healthcare


Body camera footage has played an essential part in mitigating violent and aggressive incidents in healthcare settings. The Calla front-facing screen is proven to deter aggression, de-escalate situations and provide an independent account of incidents, supporting the public and safeguarding staff.


Studies show that when people see they are being recorded, it can calm them down and avoid conflict. That’s exactly what Calla does by reducing disruption and recording an independent account of what happened.

Healthcare practitioners work hard every single day to provide care and treatment to people when they need it most. Yet, front-line staff are increasingly facing situations of abuse and aggression while on duty. The 2020 NHS Staff Survey revealed that 26% of staff had experienced at least one incident of abuse or harassment from patients or members of the public in the last 12 months.

When worn by clinical and security staff, body-worn cameras have shown to reduce the number of escalating incidents by deterring aggression and recording an independent account of what happened.

“I have seen a few occasions where the incident had de-escalated and believed this to have been helped by the camera being turned on.”

Alex Bolton Head of Health, Safety and Risk

"The cameras have made a massive difference to the nursing staff on the trauma ward. They feel safer and more reassured, and in many instances having the body cameras have de-escalated situations, preventing incidents from occurring."

Lindsay Ramsey Barts Health NHS Trust

"The cameras have been very well received, and used, by the staff in ED. They make the staff feel much more confident when dealing with difficult patients. The most pronounced effects have been on patients with long histories of abusive or aggressive behavior in the department. Now they know that they are being recorded their behavior has significantly improved."
