Three reasons that HD CCTV is important for the healthcare sector

From street cameras to in-store CCTV, installation of this technology is more prevalent and easy to access than ever before. Not only does this provide increased safety and the chance to capture any intruders, thieves or other trespassers, it also provides visitors with a greater sense of security, and also improves the working environment.

As CCTV becomes an everyday item in our lives, there’s never been a better time to consider using HD CCTV for a hospital or healthcare facility. Here are just a few reasons why this technology is more important than ever before:

Staff security

Due to the nature of healthcare, whether it’s in the A and E department of a hospital or a care home, the staff who are employed by these services are often put in situations where there may be at risk countless times a day. Whether it’s a patient with mental health difficulties or unwarranted harassment, there’s no doubt that nurses, care workers and other healthcare staff often find themselves the recipients of heightened emotions. The inclusion of CCTV cameras in these settings not only offers security by just being there, deterring any negative behaviour, but also provides a witness to any uncomfortable situations to higher level staff.

Keeping track

When working with vulnerable patients or those within care, it can sometimes be challenging to keep track of the whereabouts of every person, especially those who are liable to wander off and potentially cause harm to themselves. HD CCTV offers a quick and easy way to track down people or staff in just a few seconds, enabling those patients to continue to be watched and safe without additional staff requirements at all times.

Patient and visitor safety

In busy healthcare properties such as hospitals, the safety and wellbeing of both patients and their visitors is critical. By providing monitoring services like HD CCTV, it can be far easier to provide that extra level of security and increased presence throughout a large area. Not only does this result in happier patients, but it also lowers the level of crime and other possible problems between members of the public.
