Healthcare Security Personnel
Using the latest technology and solid customer service skills, G4S security officers reduce crimes by tracking and identifying all visitors with state-of-the-art visitor management systems
Fully versed in maintaining environment of care standards for The Joint Commission and Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), G4S understands the importance of being prepared, particularly for those inspections that come with little warning, leaving healthcare facility accreditations vulnerable.
G4S security officers are ranked No. 1 in reliability, ethics, speed of response and adherence to rules and procedures by our customers, according to the IOMA 2010-2011 Benchmark Report on Safety and Security.
Our officers are specially selected for the healthcare environment. They are committed specialists — trained to recognize and understand the unique environment in which they work and the values important to your healthcare facility.
In addition, G4S takes a three-level approach to officer programs that give customers the flexibility to select from the right program to meet their individual security and customer-service requirements with the highest quality, cost-effective solution:
Custom Protection Officer®
The G4S Custom Protection Officer® (CPO) assigned to healthcare facilities has been recruited from a highly specialized talent pool. A G4S CPO must have military or law enforcement experience or a college degree. Only one out of every 10 applicants qualifies to be a G4S CPO.
Upscale Security Officer
The G4S Upscale Security Officer (USO) can be an integral part of security programs for hospitals and healthcare facilities. The G4S USO has at least an Associate’s Degree or higher, military service or successful security experience.
Property Resource Officer
Our G4S Property Resource Officer (PRO) is also an important multi-faceted part of your healthcare environment. We understand the PRO is part security, ambassador and observer. The G4S PRO provides you with qualified security personnel tailored to your specific needs.
Additionally, all G4S officers provide these essential hospital security services:
- Facility inspections
- Security patrols
- Employee escorts
- Patient watch
G4S security officers are background checked using both federal and local databases, pre-screened, drug tested and trained to reflect your needs.
Healthcare Officer Training
All G4S officers are trained for the unique healthcare environment. Hospital security officers receive instruction in non-violent crisis intervention, healthcare regulation compliance, HIPAA, CPR and Hazmat training. Mandatory training includes 40 hours of orientation, eight hours of CPI/MOAB and eight hours annually.
