While the aging population rises with the declining birth rate, healthcare has become a crucial issue all over the world. Security in and around the healthcare institution is always a major concern due to the open nature of these places and the sensitivity of hospital operations. To protect the staff, patients, visitors, as well as the assets in many areas in the hospital, the security requirements are much more stringent than those in regular surveillance applications. Being a professional solution provider in vertical application, Surveon offers complete healthcare solutions, including high-resolution cameras, enterprise hardware RAID NVR, as well as enterprise VMS with real-time video analytics (VA) to detect forbidden area access like patient rooms, protecting the patients and staff from potential risks.

Neil Webb HANOVER, N.H. — DESPITE the intensely personal moments that happen in hospitals, patient privacy can be elusive. Hospitals are multimillion-dollar corporations that look like shopping malls and function like factories. Doctors knock on exam room doors to signal they are about to enter — not to ask permission. The curtain that encircles the hospital bed always lets in a crack of light. Yet we do expect some degree of privacy in hospitals. We trust doctors with our secrets in part because they take a 2,000-year-old Hippocratic oath to respect our privacy, an oath enforced by laws like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act . But sometimes, doctors have to weigh patients’ privacy against their health and safety, and that’s when things get complicated. The use of video monitoring — covert or disclosed, of patients or providers — has proliferated as high-quality, inexpensive technology has become increasingly accessible. The possibilities range from watching elderly patients at risk of falling in their rooms to recording doctors and nurses at sinks to make sure they’re washing their hands. My hospital, where I am chairman of the bioethics committee, recently wrestled with the question of where patient and family privacy ends. Nurses in the neonatal intensive care unit (N.I.C.U.) worried that a premature infant, whom I’ll call Rickie to protect his identity, was being harmed by his parents. Rickie had been released a week earlier from our hospital to a penniless couple in their early 20s whom Child Protection Services […]

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) – The president of Good Shepherd Health Systems says as soon as the stabbing happened Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview went on lock down. Hospital officials would not say if any extra security was put in place after the stabbing. “During the normal business hours the general public would have access. After hours, we lock down but that’s strictly after hours,” says Kenny Jerniga, director of security at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview. The president of the hospital says their security guards are not armed but did respond to the stabbing as soon as it happened. One witness says the hospital staff could not have done a better job. “They literally swooped in and got everybody moved into an office. They got some of the folks into a bathroom, they were locking the doors, bracing the doors, just standing there waiting,” says Chad Jackson, who was in the hospital with his family when the stabbing happened. “I just can’t say enough good things about the way they handled everything,” says Jana Jackson, who also saw the stabbing. Hospital officials hope the entire crime was caught on camera. “We are in the process of reviewing all of the video surveillance that we have available. It will be turned over to the Longview Police Department for their investigation,” Jerniga says. All of Tuesday and Wednesday’s surgeries are being rescheduled. The Jacksons say they don’t have to think twice, they will definitely be back. “It was not their […]
Dramatic security camera footage from Bogota, Colombia captured a group of gunmen, wearing face masks and trench coats, storming a hospital on September 18. The purpose of the attack, which looks a lot like a scene from a Hollywood film, was to free a prisoner who was being treated inside, local media reported. The assailants liberated Alexander Urrego, a man convicted in 2011 of involvement in a gang killing. According to Colombian daily La Opinion, four men have so far been captured in connection with Wednesday’s escapade, but Urrego is not among them. There is is 30 million peso ($15,900) reward being offered for information leading to his re-arrest. Video by NTD Television.
