The mere thought that healthcare facility workers would strike seems counter-intuitive to their job of preserving the well being of people.
Yet even in the best of circumstances, it can happen, and the effects can be devastating to both patients and employees if you do not have healthcare facility management procedures in place.
While there are many causes that elicit a strike response from healthcare workers, how an organization manages an efficient facilities maintenance management program during such an event is key-and proper security is a necessary component.
The regulations that govern healthcare facilities call for proper maintenance and effective management to keep both employees and patients safe. This compliance criteria mandates that you identify patient, staff, and equipment risk. A strong facilities maintenance management program is crucial to meet these expectations. Given the requirements for patient confidentially governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the overall need for a safe environment, your organization needs the assurance that its healthcare facilities management plan can provide the high level of security necessary during a strike-and MADI can help.
