If you run a healthcare business or medical centre and you don’t already have a CCTV system installed, here are six good reasons why you should reconsider.
Heath centres are often targeted by thieves looking for drugs that may be kept on the premises. CCTV cameras sited outside your business send out a clear warning signal to would-be burglars that they will be caught on camera and are an effective deterrent.
It’s also a good idea to advertise the fact that your premises are protected by CCTV by putting up warning signs to this effect. The signage will be provided to you by your provider.
Unfortunately, there are incidents where health centre staff members are assaulted by patients. CCTV can help to protect your employees and can assist if you ever need to prosecute an offender.
Fraudulent claims CCTV camera footage can be used to provide protection for your business against fraudulent insurance or personal injury claims brought by patients or staff. Where false claims are made, CCTV evidence could preserve your health centre’s reputation and protect your insurance claims history too. Discourage theft A healthcare business that has a drug store onsite can be vulnerable to petty pilfering. Having a CCTV camera fitted in the pharmacy acts as a very effective deterrent for anyone who may be tempted. Premises monitoring When your business premises are unoccupied, they may be vulnerable. A modern CCTV system can be set up so that you can view the feed remotely on a tablet or smartphone. This means that you can keep an eye on your business 24 hours a day, wherever you are in the world, and if you spot anything suspicious, you can take immediate action. Integration with other security systems In order to really ramp-up your health centre security, you could have your CCTV integrated with other aspects of your security system. This means that if your access control or intruder alarm are activated, you will be notified so that you can immediately check your premises via your CCTV feed.
