Healthcare Institutions 

Virtually all hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutions are equipped with surveillance systems to maintain safety and security. However, in this day and age, sometimes surveillance systems aren’t enough. Hiring private security officers in a hospital can help address threats more immediately than surveillance cameras are able to.

Address Physical Violence


According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), healthcare and social service workers face a significant risk of job-related violence. Over the years, the rates of physical violence in hospitals have increased. From patients to visitors, hospital employees are subject to threats or assault. The presence of security officers helps deter potential offenders from committing these acts because in the back of their mind they know that they have a high probability of facing consequences for their actions. In the case of a physical altercation however, we assure you that you will have trained security officers who will quickly and appropriately address the situation before any serious harm is done.




Identify Potential Threats and Incidents


Unfortunately, threats to hospitals are all too common. In June 2017, Somerset Hospital in Somerset, PA was locked down for two hours because of a bomb threat. Just like any building with large amounts of people, hospitals are vulnerable environments to threats like theft and violence. If there is a threat, it can have a huge impact on the well-being of sick or injured patients. Having trained security officers on site that can identify and address potential hospital security threats prior to them happening makes all the difference. Our security officers are trained to patrol the hospital and locate any threats or potential security risks. They can identify thieves or vandals, notice suspicious packages, or pinpoint slip-and-trip hazards in the building. They can mitigate these problems to protect the building and its occupants.




Access Control


There are always certain areas of the hospital where not open to everyone. Security officers will ensure only hospital staff with the proper credentials get into areas of the hospital with restricted access. They can also use cameras to monitor who enters and exits various areas in the hospital.




Protecting Your Hospital's Reputation


A security officer will remain on property to handle any situations as soon as they arise. By doing so, they can protect the hospital’s reputation by ensuring that everyone in the vicinity knows how and when the hospital will respond to tense situations. All patients, visitors, and medical staff will come to know that the security officer will be there to handle any problem before it has the chance to escalate. Prompt service keeps the clinic’s reputation intact and lets people know the place operates efficiently and safely for everybody in the area.
