Healthcare Security Services
“Protecting people, property, information, and reputations.”
Our role at Diamond Security Services is to make sure conditions are normal in any given area and provide a visible deterrent factor. This function takes on greater importance at night by providing a feeling of safety for staff, patients, and visitors.
An especially important function of our Healthcare Security services is our rapid response to security emergencies within the hospital. Whether for psychiatric or medical reasons, patients sometimes become violent or threaten medical or nursing staff. Residents should never put themselves or other staff at risk in these situations but should immediately call for Security Officers’ assistance in subduing or restraining such patients. Health care security officers give directions to hospital patients and visitors. They may also help people into and out of their cars, or assist them with dead car batteries. Security Officers spend a good deal of their time enforcing the rules and regulations of the hospital, which is one of the primary responsibilities.
