Hospital Security Lessons Learned from the COVID-19 Crisis: Part 1
In Part 1 of this two-part webinar series, we will discuss what hospital security departments have been experiencing during the COVID-19 crisis and lessons learned about PPE, staffing, and more.
With many regions in America now having successfully “flattened the curve” of coronavirus infections, there are many valuable lessons U.S. hospital security and emergency management practitioners can take away from this crisis.
This two-part presentation will feature four experts with years of hospital security and emergency management experience. They will provide an in-depth analysis of healthcare facility pandemic planning, U.S. hospitals’ experience during the coronavirus crisis, lessons learned, what we can expect in the near future, and the long-term opportunities for improved security and emergency management in the post-COVID-19 world.
Part 1 will cover:
- What hospitals and our local, state and federal governments knew or should have known before COVID-19 about pandemics and their effects on hospital security and emergency management
- What hospital security departments have been experiencing during the COVID-19 crisis
- Lessons learned related to PPE, other supplies, security technology (video surveillance, visitor management, access control and more) and staffing
