Hospitals and healthcare facilities face a number of security issues. Consider the variety of people who make up the typical hospital environment - patients, staff, vendors, physicians, visitors and even their enemies. Consider the place - many different rooms and spaces, high-value equipment, accessibility to drugs, many entrances and ease-of-movement around the building and premises. Consider a typical hospital - an open feeling, many managers, politics, autonomous physicians... It all adds up to a need for different approaches to security. Hospital managers base their security decisions on law, costs, fear of litigation, and to protect their facility's reputation. But the critical assets of a hospital - its people, property, information and reputation - must be protected with good security. The main threats in a hospital environment are insider/employee theft, visitor thefts, threats against patients or staff, and crimes of opportunity.
GLOBAL SCOPE can analyze the hospitals' security needs, we begin by listing the departments, reviewing the business culture of the hospital, determining the threat levels in each department, interviewing department heads about threats and crime, and planning possible countermeasures for each department. Then develop a master plan and review it against a "reality check" on the basis for the plan and the tools that will be needed.
Hospitals have many options in security - high-tech, low-tech, even no-tech. Low-tech options include locks, barriers, good lighting and landscaping. Among the no-tech options, policies and procedures can be developed to enhance security. Training and supervision keep those policies and procedures at the forefront. Programs help promote security awareness in the staff. High-tech choices include alarm systems, access control systems, photo identification, CCTV, two-way voice communications and weapons screening systems. But new tools such as patient locators, video pursuit software, delayed egress hardware, active asset control systems, enterprise-wide systems, digital video and pager alarms can enhance security even more.
