Critical Security Systems for Medical Facilities

Medical facilities are at the crux of a complex intersection for facilities that deal with large volumes of traffic while having to address the most private of human issues: medical information. In addition to these issues that are often difficult to address, the facilities also have to be prepared to handle a range of emotions and conflicts. Family conflicts, legal issues and the medical treatment of those involved in criminal matters are daily challenges faced in emergency rooms.

These facilities are impacted by numerous standards and regulations from independent certification organizations such as The Joint Commission (TJC), complex life safety codes derived from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and other evolving standards driven by protecting patient information. In addition, various standards driven by TJC, internal standards and insurance requirements all work to shape the design and implementation of security measures at these facilities.

  • access-control

    1 Access Control

    From simple access control entry systems at after hour emergency room doors to complex multi-technology readers in drug storage areas

    Access control in a medical complex is typically designed with a layered approach. The design allows for easy access to those areas that commonly receive the general public. However, it quickly increases with drug storage, records rooms, server locations, private offices and surgical areas. An understanding of how to interface various access reader types utilizing a single badge is a proven skill in all of our ISI designers.

  • video-surveillance
    2 Video Surveillance

    Systems from hundreds of video surveillance cameras to large, long-term digital storage

    Video surveillance solutions in large medical complexes require experience in application and design. The ability to produce usable video when it matters most requires a strategy that involves choosing cameras from the most advanced HD megapixel applications and working with clients to integrate functional legacy analog devices into a growing digital recording backend. Centralized viewing locations, along with selected locations for particular video signals to be viewed, is a typical arrangement that our ISI designers work with you to implement.

  • intrusion-detection
    3 Intrusion Detection

    Intrusion detection for facilities that rarely close but require close monitoring of key areas during working hours

    When facilities have high volumes of human traffic and various sensitive areas on the premises, it is imperative to have quickly armed and easily operated security areas. The ability to quickly secure drug rooms, record rooms and more is a feature that must be built into a medical facility, from surgical operations to clinics.

  • detention-grade-equipment
    4 Detention Grade Equipment

    Physical security matters in environments in which high volumes of people can gather under difficult situations

    The areas that separate staff from patients or patients from sensitive areas (such as drug rooms and records storage areas) often require more than just a typical physical security structure. The ability to smoothly blend high-security physical barriers into modern medical design is one of the most important skills of our ISI designers. Bullet-resistant walls, glass and doors with integrated electronic controls for access and video are among the many solutions that ISI delivers.

  • fire-detection

    5 Fire Detection Solutions

    Fire alarm and notification systems that combine hundreds of devices and communicate and coordinate responses to emergencies

    At ISI, our security experts are highly skilled in the design, engineering, installation, service and monitoring of large fire alarm systems for campus multi-story buildings. Our team, which includes NICET level four engineers, works to design the solutions that meet your use and code requirements. The understanding of how these systems are used on a daily basis makes all the difference in the world for our clients.

  • physical-security-information-management
    6 Physical Security Information Management

    Integrated command and control centers that bring hundreds and often thousands of sensors into an actionable control center

    Our ISI designers have decades of experience in integrating complex communication systems and dispatching technology as necessary in developing a thorough physical security information management system.

  • remote-monitoring
    7 Remote Off-Site Monitoring

    Facilities that require UL-grade monitoring or intrusion, fire and video monitoring

    Medical facilities are not all staffed with 24/7/365 command and control centers. Even those that have these types of control centers require a third party to monitor the various critical systems in the facility, such as fire alarm systems. ISI’s UL-listed central station partners offer the best in central station monitoring for your security and life safety needs.

  • maintenance
    8 Maintenance

    Response service, spare part packages and scheduled preventive maintenance programs

    Clients vary on the extent that they perform simple maintenance issues associated with security and life safety systems. We design the solutions for your facility that leverage our factory-certified technicians to maximize your return.
