Florida’s BayCare Health System of hospitals in Florida has increased security measures at most of its facilities now, including metal detectors and visitor badges, according to an article on the Campus Life Safety and Security website.

Most BayCare hospital facilities will now require visitors to pass through a metal detector screening and show identification before they can enter.

At that point, visitors will receive the photo ID badge required to enter the facility.

The hospitals with metal detectors have them installed at all public entrances, including the emergency department and ambulance entrances.·
