Preserving patient confidentiality, safeguarding prescription medications and protecting patients and highly-skilled staff are just three of the security needs faced by those in the healthcare industry. Arecont Vision understands the unique needs of this market and provides megapixel technology to specifically meet those needs.
In August, 2010, a new survey of healthcare security executives by the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS) reveals increases in reported violent crimes in hospitals in 2009 compared to similar crimes reported in a survey five years ago.
Although overall crime in hospitals increased by 75% in 2009 compared to 2004, the survey reported that in four categories of violent crime (rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault) it increased by 200%.
In the five non-violent crime categories, which account for 76% of all hospital crime (burglary, larceny, arson, vandalism, and motor vehicle theft), the survey reported a 54% increase in crime incidents compared to 2004.
