Case Studies

OPJ Cancer Hospital, HISAR

Extensive CP PLUS CCTV installation mitigates potential threats at O.P.J.I. Cancer and Research hospital, Hisar.

Background

Jindal Institute of Medical Sciences (JIMS) with its multiple lush green lawns and patient friendly environment is spread over sprawling area of 14.5 Acres in Hisar, Haryana. In 2008, the hospital added a cancer wing- O.P. Jindal Institute of Cancer and Research. It is a 600 bedded multispecialty Hospital catering to thousands of people in rural Haryana, Punjab and adjoining areas of Rajasthan.

Threat Perceptions

The modern healthcare facility faces increasing crime and economic challenges in protecting people, property and sensitive data. Securing the healthcare environment is a challenging and continual effort for most healthcare security managers, who face unique challenges in balancing the open campus environment with the protection needs of the hospital's patients, employees, and other assets.

By conducting a comprehensive risk assessment, O.P. Jindal Institute of Cancer and Research hospital security managers prioritized identified risks and developed an effective hospital security program. The video surveillance and its enhanced functions have to play a major and challenging role.

The general objective was to mitigate any risk to a manageable and acceptable level.

Challenges

Security and safety at healthcare facilities are important for both quality healthcare and public safety. Hospitals and clinics are a safe haven for those in physical or emotional need, and increasingly seen as a place of refuge in the event of a large-scale emergency such as a natural disaster or terrorist attack. For these reasons and others, more and more people use hospitals as their first source for help. Hence, it is essential that healthcare security staff not only consider facility security and safety, but also take an interest in broader public safety. CP PLUS wanted CCTV to protect people - whether in buildings or OPD, Wards, or ICU, car parks – and the team had to interfere with the 24x7 site as little as possible. CP Plus took the challenge and continues with interruptions.

Providing security for hospitals involves more than the best choice of products and features—it also requires best practices!
