There was no security system in the original design and there was substantial unauthorized people wandering throughout the hospital, especially from the Emergency
Room on the weekends.
Security is essential in a modern hospital and the emergency room must have the proper physical controls to limit unauthorized access during off duty hours.
All hospitals and health centers need a comprehensive security plan, with extensive security cameras inside and outside monitored from a 24-hr duty station preferrably in the Emergency Department.
