Total Price$22.00

Every employee of a healthcare facility has a responsibility to residents/patients, other staff and visitors to keep them safe from criminal and dangerous activities. Additionally, facility management has a responsibility to ensure that the physical plant is protected from fire, vandalism and other detrimental occurrences. Common sense drives the majority of security decisions within a long-term care facility. However, there are some guidelines that should be respected when developing a sound security program within any organization and additional items unique to the healthcare facilities that should be considered like configuration of the existing physical plant, availability of funding and staffing, and, of course, the overall community environment in which the facility is located.
