Supporting the Healthcare Industry
Hospitals are in the business of serving the health needs of their communities. Patients are treated with the goal of providing optimum care in a safe and secure environment. A hospital environment presents a unique set of challenges for security professionals. In addition to protecting patients, visitors and staff, healthcare security professionals must also deal with a myriad of other issues, such as equipment and pharmaceutical theft, unauthorized access, patient wandering, and infant abduction. Additionally, hospital security professionals must also prepare for their role in response to major disasters, and they must perform all of these functions in an environment of extensive regulatory and compliance requirements.
Controlling disparate security and building management systems
Managing risks associated with infant protection alarms, large crowds, and patient wandering
Preventing unauthorized access to secure areas
Enhancing equipment tracking to increase regulatory compliance
Meeting duty of Care obligations for employees, staff and visitors 24/7
