A hospital security system is the processes, software, and hardware put in place to protect the facility’s patients, staff, inventory, building, and data. Security systems help healthcare professionals create a safe and caring environment for vulnerable patients.

The healthcare industry has a range of security risks. Many of these are related to patient safety, but digital threats are on the rise. It’s important the security solution you choose addresses all of these challenges. We’ll go into detail on the most common healthcare security risks below:
Unauthorized visitors or personnel having access to sensitive information or areas is a major security challenge in the healthcare industry. Whether in a hospital, inpatient facility, or skilled nursing facility, access control is a unique risk. Your staff must have access to the information for their patients, but it’s also vital you protect the information of all the other patients. Visitors who are not approved roaming the halls is another large risk that must be addressed with a security system.
Intruders with ill intentions and theft are more healthcare security challenges. Some people are looking to steal information while others are more prone to violence. Having a security system that controls and monitors who enter the building is a must.
When an occurrence does happen, a security system will provide you with video footage to give to law enforcement. This will help you to resolve the issue and know exactly who is responsible.
The healthcare industry has to have data protections in place. Not only is it a law to keep this information safe, but the facility won’t stay open for long if it doesn’t take data protection seriously. Patients and their families want to know that their confidential health information is secure at your organization. You must have a hospital security system in place with data protection.
There are many benefits of a hospital security system. These benefits ripple across the organization, offering peace of mind for you, your staff, patients, and their families. Read more about the benefits below:
Patients do not want to deal with people they do not know when in the hospital. A security system ensures unauthorized visitors are not allowed. It also includes measures to monitor and track all other visitors so that if something does happen, it only takes a few minutes to determine the responsible party. Patients also feel like their sensitive health information is safe when you have a security system.
A strong security system has 24/7, real-time monitoring. This is important in a healthcare setting where abuse, violence, and theft are all rampant. You can ensure your team is doing what they should at all times with video surveillance.
A security system keeps your facility, staff, and patients safe. Employees who know they are being monitored are more likely to follow the rules and less likely to steal. Hospital security systems have been linked to higher productivity, efficiency, and morale.
Patients need to feel safe when in the hospital. They are sick and trying to heal, so worrying about their safety is the last thing they need. A security system allows them to heal safely.
You, your staff, patients, visitors, and families all have peace of mind with a security system. This is important to build trust in the healthcare industry.
You may be wondering what is included in a hospital security system. TTD Security Systems designs customized solutions based on your healthcare facility’s needs. Some of the components of your tailor-made solution could include:
Access control is achieved by a card or biometric device. These readers scan cards, hands, fingerprints, or retinas to approve or deny access. You can use these devices on doors, elevators, drawers, cabinets, and more. This allows you to keep sensitive data and areas protected.
The database records every transaction so you always know who accessed it last. This is especially helpful when there are cases of theft or breaches.
Perimeter protection consists of sensors, lighting, signage, fences, and gates to protect the outside of your healthcare facility. Perimeter protection is the first step in safeguarding your facility.
TTD Security Systems’s digital surveillance solution provides crystal-clear and high-resolution images. Other features of these cameras include:
Your security system needs high-quality video surveillance equipment. Not only does it help you monitor your facility, but it’s also evidence for law enforcement when needed. Our solution allows you to monitor or access footage from remote or mobile devices, so you never worry about what is happening.
A security system with regular maintenance will last much longer than one without. Software and hardware need updates and tweaks every so often so you get the most out of your system. A security maintenance and repair solution allows you to keep your hospital security system functioning properly for years to come.
