Security at a hospital campus can be complex. For instance, hospitals usually have more access points than the standard commercial building, according to an article on the Security Today website.
The pandemic has expanded the need for access restrictions and thoughtful planning and execution of a security plan.
Parking facilities can be among the most dangerous areas of any campus, so it’s important to have reliable communication with security officers.
Emergency stations placed near pedestrian entries, stairwells and pay stations can link visitors or staff who may be in trouble to the security team.
Some healthcare facilities have installed LED lighting in their parking structures because, in part, it can provide enhanced security in the garage. There’s no longer glare around the wall-mounted cameras and they offer improved visibility when officers are patrolling, according to an article on the Health Facilities Management website.
