Report Writing and Incident Reporting Officer Training

“It seems like such a mundane part of the job but if I have a hospital security officer, even if they look really good, if they can’t articulate what they saw and did, if they can’t document properly, that’s a huge risk to the organization because that’s what’ll be looked at if there’s any kind of litigation or regulatory scrutiny down the road. If an event occurs, even if you did everything right, if you can’t document it you can still get in trouble. I think that’s something a lot of people don’t understand.”
