Security Surveillance for Hospitals

To deal with emergency situations and sudden increases in foot traffic, proper security surveillance systems should be installed and ready in hospitals.

In regards to the recent terrorist attacks that shook Manchester, we are taking this opportunity to discuss the importance of a robust security surveillance system in hospitals. Following the attacks, several victims were rushed to nearby hospitals including the Massachusetts General Hospital. As is common after attack of this scale, police and hospital feared a potential follow-up attack on the hospital. Extra security and police were put in place as necessary, but one of the most useful security feature turned out to be the already in place security camera system inside and outside the hospital.

 

According to the UK’s Security News Desk, Massachusetts General Hospital had in place a robust video management software (VMS) with 13,000 network cameras and several monitoring guards in place. The hospital’s security team processes over 1,000 investigations per year, made easier by the easy-to-use system they have in place.

 

A VMS allows guards to monitor several rooms, corridors, and entrances at once. Suspicious activity could be tracked throughout the system, with abilities to play back footage and track specific suspects.

 

After a disaster, hospital activity surges and monitoring entering and exiting traffic becomes a difficult task. VMS systems are pre-programmed to deal with such surges, making hospitals and other high-traffic locations capable of dealing with emergency situations.
