1)  The rate of paid assault claims at Western State Hospital has steadily declined (-48%)  since FY 05 and is attributed to the re-establishment of the Return To Work program and implementation of the Workplace Safety Plan.

2)   Eastern State Hospital paid assault claims rate remains on target and has been below maximum target for 12 of the last 14 quarters.

3)  Child Study Treatment Center (CSTC) paid assault claims rate is on target for the quarter. The rolling average over the last 4 quarters at CSTC remains below target and is 16% below the FY 05 average.
