We help ensure everyone’s medical records are safe behind closed doors, so nobody gets in and accesses vital personal information. Keep your patients’ identities safe by hiring our guards to patrol your records office.

  • Respond to emergencies: When a patient’s condition suddenly goes from bad to worse, you need someone available to assist in any way possible.

Even if it’s just helping a patient who’s fallen down, we’ll be there to get them back up and get them the help they need.
  • Greet and escort patients: Your patients want to see a friendly face when they arrive at the hospital. After all, they’re probably nervous and don’t want to be at the hospital in the first place. Place one of our security guards at the hospital entrance to help settle the minds of your patients by greeting them with a smile. We’re also able to point everyone in the right direction or escort patients to help keep foot traffic flowing smoothly.
  • Do anything else asked: A commercial security guard is on site to help out wherever he or she can. Regardless of the task, we guarantee one of our guards will do whatever is necessary to help out with the situation.

    Thanks for mentioning that some roles of a hospital security guard include protecting visitors and employees, keep an eye on medications and respond to emergencies. I think it’s a good idea that a healthcare facility has a reputable protection service to watch over the staff so they can do their jobs safely. It also seems like a good investment to hire members from a reputable agency to provide quality service if a hospital is thinking of hiring protection.
