Use Technology to Reduce Violence Against Hospital Workers

Security systems integrators can assist healthcare organizations in developing functional standards across the entire campus to create a cohesive security program that meets the needs of campus stakeholders and addresses the overall goals of the organization today and for years to come.

The frightening fact is that hospital workers — the nurses and doctors who want to help people —experience the highest rate of workplace violence in the United States. That’s according to statistics from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The acts of violence drive up hospital costs and lead to increased worker turnover, low morale, reduced productivity, absenteeism, loss of team unity and job stress.

But it is possible to increase security, even on an individual level.

Learn what solutions are available to create a cohesive and comprehensive system that includes:

  • Personal panic alarms
  • Video documentation on a phone
  • GPS information for a response team
  • Warnings sent to the rest of the team
