Hospitals Find Increased Security Benefits through CCTV Systems

Hospitals have hundreds of visitors. They come to see friends and family, while ambulances bring in those who are ill or need emergency care. With all of these people coming and going, hospitals need to insure the safety of patients and staff.
 
 
Feb. 12, 2008 - PRLog -- Hospitals are often viewed as safe places where people go to be healed of diseases and injuries.  Criminal assaults, thefts and other dangerous situations don't seem like they could ever occur in such a safe location.  However, criminal assaults in hospitals do happen, often perpetrated by persons unauthorized to be there.  Because of all the people constantly going in and out of hospitals, it can be easy for a criminal to get inside.
CCTV systems integrate with your access control system to monitor the people coming and going from hospitals, as well as those people accessing certain secure areas.  

Additionally, CCTV systems are able to provide safety to visitors in hospital parking lots and parking garages.  
It is imperative that people in hospitals have a reason to be there.  Likewise, only authorized individuals should enter certain wards, laboratories, or pharmacies.  CCTV and access control systems allow hospital security personnel to monitor individuals in these sensitive areas.
 
A variety of criminal activities have taken place in hospitals.  For instance, infant abduction is not uncommon.  The visitor often accesses the hospital through the controlled areas, but escape by utilizing an unauthorized area.  CCTV and access control systems are able to allow security to monitor any visitor in these unauthorized parts.
