How to Plan for Video Surveillance Upgrades at Your Hospital
Here are some helpful equipment selection, planning, and maintenance tips that will ensure your healthcare campus gets the most from its security cameras.
The vast majority of U.S. hospitals have embraced video surveillance, with 96 percent of them having installed security cameras, according to Campus Safety magazine’s 2016 video surveillance survey. Additionally, 79 percent of respondents said they plan on purchasing more video surveillance technology in the next three years.
The reason for this broad support of security cameras is simple: they work. Video surveillance systems expand the reach of medical center security personnel, especially those departments that are understaffed. Additionally, the evidence provided by these systems frequently helps law enforcement solve crimes.
