DYNAMIC, AI-DRIVEN TOURS GENERATE ROI FOR TEXAS HOSPITAL
According to a Milliman Research report for the American Hospital Association, violent incidents are a $428 million burden for hospitals each year. Data from OSHA indicates hospitals average nearly 34 violent incidents per year, with the average cost for a hospital employee’s injury being $19,000. That’s more than $640,000 per hospital annually and excludes other “soft costs” that harm an institution’s reputation and worker turnover. For a single year, this can quickly raise post-incident costs to over one million dollars.
Security Professionals give a hospital its best chance to protect against violence, according to a survey of hospital Security Directors in the benchmark report by Tarsus Direct. Of course, officers can’t be everywhere at once. If they’re needed elsewhere to address avoidable incidents and lesser threats, then they’re not available when the time comes to act on critical threats.
