Health is the most valuable property. Still, even health care professionals working in hospitals must handle problems like theft, disputes over possible malpractice or even the kidnapping of infants. CCTV / IP video surveillance systems by CCTV installer are being used in order to prevent against returns of these crimes or at least enable a speedy and cost effective solution.
Surveillance systems are already used in perimeter protection: High-resolution surveillance cameras keep an eye on each corner and ensure that no unauthorized individual enters the compound. In most cases, the system will undoubtedly be monitored by a gate keeper through the tracking software SMAVIA Viewing Client which is very clear and simple to function, which negates the requirement to employ additional security employees. Moreover, if a number plate recognition system is joined to the CCTV system, the procedure of obstacles or traffic lights (i.e. in parking blocks or transport gateways) can be controlled automatically.
The openly accessible and mostly unlocked rooms make it simple for prospective thieves to steal clinic and/or patient property, which frequently causes major financial losses for the hospital. In most cases detailed images from high quality surveillance cameras in halls, at emergency exits, near elevators or in the pay office, lead to a positive identification of the perpetrator. Another benefit of CCTV installers Wolverhampton’s recorders and video servers is that the recorded images are accepted for evidential purposes in courts of law (LGC Forensics certification).
Security in the newborn nursery
Repeatedly, instances of kids being kidnapped from newborn nurseries hit the headlines. Consequently, nobody enters the infant ward unnoticed.
Often in the aftermath of failed surgeries or complicated arrivals, the question arises whether or not mistakes were made during the procedure. Any such disputes can be concluded immediately and conclusively thanks to advanced video surveillance. Digital recording systems are often being used during surgeries to be able to be able to examine the whole procedure at a subsequent date. In compliance with sanitary regulations the recorder is not located in the operating theatre but generally in a separated room. Data protection is also guaranteed at all times. With relation to the pre-procedure discussion, which must take place before every surgery, the patient is made attentive to the chance to record the surgery and then decides whether or not he or she would like to take advantage of it.
Also, digital recording systems are being employed in another, highly sensitive field of medicine: Endoscopy. Endoscopy is a diagnostic procedure for the examination of orifices and hollow organs such as stomach, colon or trachea. Using this technology, the physician can diagnose, and if necessary, instantly treat disorders without an invasive surgical procedure.
An endoscope is generally composed of a cold-light review lamp (so as to prevent the organs from damage as a result of heat) as well as a camera. The images are shown on a screen, making it considerably easier for the physician to heal the patient since he is able to see clear and magnified images of the applicable organs. The images are concurrently recorded onto a CCTV recorder. Primarily, doctors who were not present when the endoscopy was conducted can make use of the recordings for a later diagnosis. Secondly, the images serve as teaching material for prospective doctors.
Video surveillance saves lives
Notably in intensive care units, patients are mostly unable to convey a deterioration of their condition to medical staff. Video surveillance enables staff to monitor patients 24/7 — for in an emergency it’s the rapid response of the treating doctors which determines a patient’s chances to live. In anaesthetic recovery rooms the patients’ conditions are additionally just monitored from the nurses’ room.
The requirements for video surveillance systems in hospitals are high: Reliability and failure safety, simple operation and control as well as flexibility and adaptability. Additionally, flexibility and adaptability’s records should be accepted for evidential purposes in courtroom. Many hospitals don’t have the financial resources at their disposal, which are essential to migrate instantaneously from analogue to digital recording. So, CCTV installers Wolverhampton gives the chance to gradually correct the system depending on the individual needs of each hospital. Also, owing to their flexibility, the systems can certainly be expanded later on.
Complete surveillance mechanisms (e.g. dynamic fan control, monitoring of exterior and interior temperature, diagnosis of assembly groups, voltage control, etc.) ensure greatest operational reliability and sturdiness of the recorders.
