Strengthening Healthcare Physical Security

Strengthening Healthcare Physical Security at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

In the realm of healthcare, ensuring the safety and security of patients, staff, and facilities is paramount. While traditional physical security systems play a crucial role in safeguarding healthcare environments, the ability to layer security with integration of mobile security products has become increasingly essential to expand the security perimeter around healthcare facilities.

Challenges Faced by Healthcare Organizations

Healthcare facilities, ranging from hospitals to clinics and long-term care facilities, face a myriad of security challenges. These include unauthorized access, theft, violence, and other safety concerns that can compromise the well-being of patients and staff. Traditional physical security systems, such as access control, surveillance cameras, and alarm systems, form the foundation of healthcare security protocols. However, the evolving nature of security threats necessitates innovative solutions that offer greater flexibility, mobility, and efficiency.

Complex Facility Layouts: Healthcare facilities often feature complex layouts with multiple entry points, corridors, and restricted areas, posing challenges for traditional security systems to monitor effectively.

Staff Mobility: Healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, and support staff, require seamless access to secure areas and patient information while moving throughout the facility, necessitating mobile security solutions.

Emergency Response: In emergency situations such as active shooter incidents or natural disasters, quick and effective communication and coordination among staff and security personnel are critical to ensure a swift response and minimize harm.

The Role of Mobile Security Products

Mobile Pro Systems offers a range of innovative mobile security products designed to complement traditional physical security systems and address the evolving security needs of healthcare organizations. These solutions empower healthcare security teams with real-time visibility, communication, and control over security operations, enhancing overall safety and responsiveness.

“Mobile security products have saved Northwestern Memorial HealthCare time and budget by providing an additional layer of security creating greater efficiency, flexibility and effectiveness.”
