Maintaining Department Security (Video)



Though you are not solely responsible for the security of your department, you can do your part to make sure that no harm comes to you, your coworkers, or the patients. 

Make sure that doors that are to be closed and locked are closed and locked.

Ensure that there are no doors are propped open. Not only for security reasons, but it can be a fire hazard if the door is supposed to close when the fire alarm is activated.

If there is a door that should have a lock on it, but it doesn’t speak up and say something.

Even stairwells can pose a threat. If there is a door that leads from the outside to your unit (employees or patients who smoke may keep the door propped open to make it easier to reenter the building) that can be an issue if people have bad intentions.
