When most people consider places that might need access control systems, hospitals usually aren’t very high up on the list. Generally, when we think of facilities needing security, financial institutions, security companies, government buildings, and similar locations come to mind, but, truth is, hospitals are just as vulnerable to security breaches. Healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, face complex security challenges daily. Every hospital has many sensitive assets that need securing around the clock. Key assets include patients, doctors, nurses and support staff, of course. Now, not all site users are created equal: medical staff, cleaners, patients and their visitors, and countless temporary and contract workers, all need access tailored to their specific and very different needs. We expect too much of the traditional lock and key if we expect it to meet such a challenge. What’s the alternative, especially at a time when healthcare budgets are tight? The answer lies in an access control systems.
Electronic access control systems are increasingly being used to enhance safety and security in medical facilities, hospitals and residential care homes. Access control is the means by which people are granted or denied access to restricted areas, such as clinics, operating rooms, labs, and parking garages. Access control systems provides validation and authorization of staff and guests attempting to gain access into different locations within your facility. It reduces the risk of unauthorized access and the potential loss of property. When an access control system is installed, its main purpose is to protect, in this case, three things: people (staff, patients, and visitors), assets and data. An access control system installation can deliver this in a cost effective manner, making it a powerful tool that will improve security and reduce costs.
Healthcare facilities are usually open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and are required to be accessible to the public. As a result, there are dozens or even hundreds of unknown visitors to a hospital on a daily basis. For this reason, the largest security challenge hospitals and other medical facilities face is protecting a space that is intended to be not only a public environment, but also an inviting one. This means that a balance between creating a welcoming environment, and a secure environment is needed, not just using technology, but as part of the healthcare facility’s culture of security. For hospital administrators and security staff, integrating various security systems in the hospital offers numerous advantages. Integration can simplify the operation and control of complex hospital systems, while enhancing security at the same time. Combine access control with video surveillance for a complete integrated security system. Whether you are trying to protect a hospital or a small medical facility, using access control offers numerous benefits with almost no drawbacks to consider.

For these reasons and others, more and more people use hospitals as their first source for help.
