Hospitals have been identified by security experts as one of the most difficult venues to protect. Hospitals contain expensive equipment and controlled substances that attract a criminal element. They operate 24 hours per day and are, by design, open to visitors.
Hospitals are occupied by people in crisis–both crime perpetrators and victims, and those with mental illness who may be more likely to respond violently. It is no surprise, then, that hospital employees are much more likely to be victims of workplace violence than any other profession.
