JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, Fla., has removed metal detectors and police officers were pulled from inside the emergency room, according to an article on the WPTV website.
Doctors said JFK had metal detectors for increased security because there's a mental health unit.
JFK sent a notice to employees stating that as of June 28, 2019, the detectors were removed at entrances.
"We are always looking for ways to enhance and improve our patient and visitor experience at our hospitals. That includes making them feel welcome and listening to their feedback," the letter said.See the latest posts on our homepage
