Healthcare Security occupies a unique space within the Security Industry.
Healthcare security officers require the combination of a unique set of skills, experience and training for work within an operational healthcare environment.
There can often be a security staff shortfall gap in filling a security team shift or the ad-hoc requirement for additional healthcare security officers.
This is normally contracted out to an external security provider, however often, the officers sent are either inexperienced, unqualified / uncertified in the mandated QH or CHQ client courses, or just unsuitable for the complex role within healthcare.
This places an extra burden on often stretched in-house security resources and has the potential to damage the reputation of the contract holder and/or create avoidable incidents within the hospital.
There appears to be no external healthcare security provider who specialise in providing trusted, experienced, professional, trained and qualified healthcare security officers dedicated to filling the staff shortfall gap in the healthcare security sector.
