How Risk-Based Security Can Reduce Violence in Hospitals

What’s Your Hospital’s Risk of an Active Shooter?

Hospital Security Risk Webinars explore the risk of not only Active Shooters, but other types of Mass Casualty Events, as well as Emergency Management considerations for the new CMS Standard, and natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, and flooding, like the damage from Hurricane Sandy.

The Risk-Pro products all include the new DHS Guidelines for Hospitals for Active Shooter Prevention and Response, including types of response, e.g., Run, Hide, Fight, and A.L.I.C.E. and they look at why hospitals are so unique and their RiskProfile.   EmergencyHosp-jpg

Using the new Joint Commission Statistics on Shootings in hospitals, we’ll explore how to assess your own organizations actual RISK, and see what can be done to reduce your chance of having an active shooter incident. Physical security risk assessments are required annually by The Joint Commission.

The New CMS Standards for every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid require ANNUAL SECURITY HVA RISK ASSESSMENTS!

The new CMS Criteria include having plans that treat Active Shooter and Mass Casualty Events in the Emergency planning, just like tornadoes,  hurricanes and other natural disasters.
