While much of the attention on security for healthcare facilities managers these days centers on cyber attacks, managers also must continue paying close attention to the physical security needs related to their buildings and residents.

Resident security is an ongoing concern in senior living facilities, but because of advancements in resident security technology, facilities managers also have access to a range of helpful resources, according to i Advance Senior Care. A facility might benefit from some, a combination of, or all of the resident security technology available today.

While specific tools and systems vary in their features and operations, most center around certain types of devices and systems:

  • Video surveillance systems can assist with monitoring resident safety, but they offer the added bonus of protecting facilities from vandalism. Administrators can use these systems to ensure staff are following proper protocols and residents receive an appropriate quality of care.
  • Fire prevention and monitoring systems can be specialized to facility needs and can be designed to automatically alert staff and the local fire department to save valuable time.
