Recognizing the Rising Need for Healthcare Security
“You need well-trained, educated, competent and committed security staff — really professional people who understand the complexities and nuances of healthcare.”
–Bonnie Michelman, Director of Police, Security and Outside Services at Massachusetts General Hospital
The need for Healthcare Security becomes clear when you examine the rise in healthcare related violence. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the rate of hospital employees intentionally injured on the job at the hands of another person is significantly higher than the rate across all private industries. The most recent data shows 4 times the cases of injuries for full-time hospital workers, versus cases for all private industries. Further, according to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration guide on addressing violence in hospitals, 70 to 74 percent of workplace assaults in a two year period happened in health care settings. STT Security Services Healthcare Division was developed with the express purpose of meeting this rising need.
