Wireless cabinet locks facilitate hospital security

Part of the renovation of a Milwaukee-based pediatric care facility included a pass-through cabinet for each patient room. By selecting the wireless cabinet lock strategy, the facility was able to avoid the very expensive ceiling-access procedures that require bringing in special equipment including air filtration and dust/infection containment systems and negative air pressure management systems, the article said.
