Manitoba is facing a meth crisis and rampant drug use, putting health care workers at risk to violence.

Prairie Mountain Health has formed a committee to review issues and develop safety measures, noted CEO Penny Gilson.

Also, meetings were held with PMH, Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, and various representatives from community organizations, on the gaps of service, and to come up with a plan.

Currently PMH continues training and support for 'Code responses' and there's 24/7 security, on site, at the Dauphin Regional Health Centre, which can go to other sites in the region, as necessary.
