In the health care industry, workers are exposed to several safety hazards on a daily basis. Whether you work in a large hospital or a small health clinic, there are several risks to avoid when in the health and wellness industry. Read the following solutions to ensure that your health and wellness facility is healthy, safe and secure.
Healthcare employees are at an increased risk for violence on the job. Workers in the healthcare industry are nearly 4 times more likely to be victims of workplace violence, with 7.8 cases of serious violence for every 10,000 employees. Though workplace violence can happen externally, it is common to happen between coworkers. Internal security may be more important to focus on avoiding employee theft, workplace violence or violations made in your facility.
Due to high public traffic and drug inventories, there are other security challenges that have been on the rise. The best way to protect against crime –both internal and external—is to monitor who has access within your facility during and after business hours. Access Control not only allows you to limit access within your facility, but it also allows you to create entry and exit reports of marked areas.
Video Surveillance and Monitoring
When there are multiple rooms, patients, and employees, it is hard to stay connected and alert on every area. With remote monitoring and intelligent video reports, employees and managers can monitor and make sure everyone is safe and each need is adequately met in his or her facility. Monitoring in real-time will help manage visitors and allow you to keep an eye on important equipment and secured areas.
Liabilities and Regulations
Video surveillance and monitoring can help with insurance liabilities by providing medical professionals with live feeds to help identify potential risks so precautions can be made rapidly.
With both Access Control and Video Monitoring, be sure to meet regulations and meet the standards for electronic exchange, privacy and security of health information in your facility. We’ll design and install a security system that complies with HIPAA regulations so you can secure everything from prescription medications to patient documents.
