Managing visitors is important for hospitals and long term care facilities. Ensuring that visitors are properly screened, signed in and monitored increases patient and staff security, and ensures Federal, state and local regulatory compliance.

It is critical that Chicago, IL healthcare facilities know who is coming and going at all times, to prevent entry by unauthorized persons, theft and vandalism, and potential attacks. A video security system with intrusion detection features is designed to alert your security team and local law enforcement authorities in the event of an intrusion incident, so they can respond to the situation quickly and effectively.
In medical facilities with high value items like pharmaceuticals and expensive medical equipment, there is an increased likelihood of theft. A video surveillance system along with a building access control system can help deter thieves, monitor inventory, and ensure that only authorized persons have access to sensitive areas.
When patients are in your care, it’s essential that you have a plan for every possible contingency. Being able to respond quickly and effectively to an emergency situation could mean the difference between life and death. Greatline Communications’s integrated security systems can also monitor life safety incidents like fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, or an extreme weather event, and warn patients and staff when there is an emergency.
Vandalism and property damage is expensive to remediate, and can jeopardize the functionality and security of your facility. Video surveillance systems work as a very effective deterrent to vandals. They also alert security staff to suspicious activity, to help catch vandals in the act.
The healthcare industry is based on trust. Patients need to feel cared for when they come to your facility. An integrated security system featuring video surveillance, 24/7 remote monitoring and access control helps put your entire staff at ease, so they can focus on providing the highest quality care to your patients.
