Security policies and procedures should support and facilitate your organizations mission for both patient and staff safety and care. These policies should apply to all facilities and clinic employees working within you organization.

Healthcare facility security programs, although often lead by the Security Department, are most effective when built by teams. Facilities, Medical Providers, IT, Safety, Human Resources, Risk Management, Legal, Administration, Planning, Public Relations, and other departments each play important roles in helping organizations reduce the potential for crime, respond when an incident occurs, and recover.
