Staff, Visitor & Patient Safety
Patient and visitor safety is paramount to hospitals as their reputation depends on it. The potential threats that aggressive patients pose to staff and other patients must also be managed effectively. With large open public areas to monitor and issue such as tracking medications, the effective positioning of video camera surveillance that can record high-quality images is an essential deterrent tool. Knowing that any incidents will be seen on cameras and then recorded onto the digital video management system provides peace of mind. Video clips can be quickly exported for any ensuing investigation by police and/or internal review.
Restricted Access System Solutions
Today’s hospital threat climate makes it vital to ensure that only authorized personnel has access to restricted areas. Electronic security systems can help achieve this. Koetter’s access control products offer specific features designed to meet the needs of a hospital environment from advanced monitoring of doors (reducing incidence of false alarms) to the ability to use access card readers that can validate staff ID at various areas within a hospital where security levels can be different.
If an identified threat level increases, perhaps within the nursery, the system operation can be changed to reflect this, automatically changing individual access levels, and increasing security levels. Beyond the security environment, the access control system can be used to help in areas from health and safety by allowing only trained personnel to use certain equipment.
Koetter’s Video/CCTV products have been selected from the top brands available to address the normal security requirements of monitoring hospital buildings, visitor and patient movement, car parks, and emergency access ways which are paramount, as well as meeting operational requirements. These operational requirements, for example, include monitoring medical staff as they care for patients and handle private paperwork to help ensure that they are meeting all of the regulations issued by the government.
