It is a sad reflection on today’s modern World that security is essential in many hospitals and other healthcare establishments and these places are no longer free from crime.
There are a number of reasons why security is essential in healthcare establishments. The most obvious reasons relate to people who have been physically harmed by another person or perhaps because some of the patients have mental health issues and are a danger to themselves and those around them if they are left unsupervised. Another perhaps more surprising reason is because pharmaceutical products are stored there that may be attractive to criminals.
We have all read reports in the press about patients and healthcare professionals being threatened and even worse attacked in hospitals. A&E units can be dangerous places especially late at night and at weekends. Having a security officer with a visible presence can be a very effective deterrent for aggressors or other would be criminals and can make the general public feel safer and more secure at what could already be a traumatic time.
