CCTV use in hospitals
Technology and service, a healthy alliance
The security in hospital and clinical infrastructures in Latin America faces daily challenges in which the acquisition and intelligent management of technological resources to protect their physical and human capital are decisive.
CCTV systems constitute a technological leap necessary to move towards security policies and service quality at a time when the health sector requires the best administrative and managerial decisions to overcome the challenges and challenges of the hospital industry.
Undoubtedly, CCTV security camera functions aimed at preventing difficulties present in risk situations and generating fast and adequate responses; and thanks to the development of new technologies, it has the potential to integrate with other organizations systems to control, monitor, streamline and improve processes.
Why use CCTV?
Medical facilities serve as a source of data, being key in the collection of information to generate different indicators and rates that go beyond their corporate name. But, in turn, they are susceptible to various crimes being carried out within them and live realities such as confrontations between victims and perpetrators, drug theft, extortion, attacks on employees, patients and the infrastructure itself, etc., altering the Security at all levels.
Other less dramatic aspects related to the daily operation of hospitals, such as handling intolerant people, controlling the entry and exit of patients and visitors, monitoring staff shifts, monitoring parking lots, following suspicious movements, avoiding loss of forgotten objects, Observe access to restricted places, etc., are part of the range of circumstances that a public and private health sector entity faces daily. And to meet these challenges, institutions take precautions based on the technology currently offered by the market.
It is important to note that the CCTV system is continuously articulated in organizations with other tools such as those related to fire detection and alarms, access control, etc. And although each one works independently, its synchrony allows the entity to have a global management not only of its safety, but also of its quality processes in terms of the service provided to patients and the public in general, thus complying with better attention and respecting internal policies.
However, although they are increasingly versatile, intelligent and intuitive, these technological aids require, to achieve success and maximize their potential, trained personnel to handle them and processes consistent with the entire organization to support and act accordingly with the different standards and programs of the entity.
The main objective of the hospital sector in this area is to identify and assess the needs it has within its different areas. And the challenge of the security companies is to provide the ideal advice that allows to choose solid systems for optimal operation, guaranteeing an environment free of risks and threats.
And this is how, aimed at delivering total satisfaction to the final customer, companies that manufacture security systems focus their efforts on creating a technology according to the type of business and budget available to each company
