Security in the health sector presents significant challenges due to demanding requirements and regulations. Healthcare establishments have a number of elements to consider, including:
High-value facilities and equipment
The volatile situations involving the safety and lives of people
A diverse array of spaces, buildings and departments
A number of people, including staff, patients, visitors and contractors to look after
Security is of concern to all those using health facilities. Health care providers have the right to feel safe – providing medical care without risk, just as patients need to feel safe and relaxed in order to recover. As targets for drug and prescription theft, hospitals and surgeries need to be more secure than ever. Hospital security is unique. However, with good planning, the protection of its people and assets can be enhanced. When designing security systems, the protection of the hospital’s people, property, information and reputation require consideration of legislation, cost and the potential for litigation.
