How secure is your health care facility?   What security measures does your hospital have in place to insure the security of your patients, staff, visitors and critical care assets?   Does your Security Management Program (SMP) include the appropriate protocols, policies, procedures, and annual risk assessments? Is your security program comprehensive?   Does it meet current Joint Commissoin Environment of Care© standards, CMS Conditions of Participation requirements, industry standards, and best practices?   How do you address security issues in your Emergency Department and contend with voilence in this hectic workplace environment?  What does your hospital do to prevent infant abductions and mother/baby mix-ups?   How does your hospital manage and address these critical security and risk management issues?

In today's world, prospective patients and families increasingly are evaluating hospitals not only for the quality of care they provide, but now more than ever, for the level of security and safety afforded during the patient's stay.

Security Assessments International (SAI) can support your hospital's effort to provide the highest level of security possible for your facility through a comprehensive proactive audit of your Security Management Program.   With years of expertise in healthcare security and risk management, SAI's consultants can advise your hospital on the appropriate level of security needed and recommend measures to implement state-of-the-art protection for your patients, visitors, staff and assets. SAI's founder, Jeff Aldridge, is a recognized leader in maternal-child care and pediatric unit security and the prevention of mother/baby mix-ups.
