Healthcare Security Operations
Healthcare Security Risks are at an All Time High. Break the Statistics.
Security’s role is to protect healthcare institutions from threats and ensure the safety and security of the assets and people within the organization. But without true visibility and risk mitigation, the statistics are staggering.
Each year, over 2 million people experience some form of workplace violence. These range from instances of bullying and harassing co-workers all the way to outright assault and even death. And these are just in the instances that are reported. .
Of all the workplace violence crimes, healthcare workers make up 50% of those crimes. The majority of these crimes are directed at nurses, and there has been a 20% increase in attacks in the past year.
70% of emergency nurses have been assaulted on the job, while 47% of emergency doctors have experienced some sort of violence while working. Nurses spend more time with patients and are at a higher risk.
Workplace violence is a $130 BILLION dollar industry that impacts both employees and businesses negatively. Whether medical costs, insurance or lawsuits – this is a risk that simply businesses cannot afford to ignore.
Preventing Violence Must be a Top Priority for Healthcare Security.
In a recent Security Benchmark Report, security professionals in healthcare were asked what their top priorities were for 2021. Among the top two were:
78% – Improving Visitor Management Processes and Solutions
Proper Security processes in hospitals and healthcare institutions account for having monitoring solutions such as cameras and motion sensors, and access control solutions that prevent unauthorized access. However, in the study, respondents found that they needed to implement more tools and processes around visitor management. With a number of visitors that come in and out of these facilities, having a real-time list of expected visitors and a list of unauthorized visitors can be a literal lifesaver in security.
77% – Better Emergency Preparedness and Business Continuity Planning
The events of the last year have shown that even the best planning for major incidents can fall short in the face of unprecedented challenges. Having better risk management to analyze past incidents, make process changes and build out solutions to promote more real-time response to changes in policies can have a major impact on emergency planning. Also, the need to implement better communication and real-time notification on training updates helps to keep officers aware of these changes faster and more efficiently.
