Negligent Hospital Security
It is always important that owners and managers of property provide adequate security and take reasonable steps to make sure that persons on their premises are protected from foreseeable harm. This is especially important when the property involved is a hospital. Hospital patients are already ill, hurt or in need of treatment. When they suffer an attack at the hands of someone who should have been stopped or deterred by security personnel or devices, they can be uniquely defenseless. Their injuries can be extremely serious because they are usually already in poor physical condition. Other persons on hospital property, such as visitors and employees, also deserve to be reasonably safe. When hospital owners fail to provide adequate security and someone is injured on their property, they might be held liable and have to compensate the injured person.What are some examples of negligent hospital security?
Hospital security may be inadequate where:
- Hallways, stairwells, elevators, entrances and exits are poorly-lit
- The hospital failed to set or follow a security policy
- The hospital failed to provide security devices or surveillance
- Someone got through security who should not have
- Standards for hiring or training hospital security are low
- There have been previous attacks or the owner had reason to know that an attack might occur and did not do anything to prevent it
