About this blog

We write articles mainly about visitor management, which helps you to know who is (or has been) in your facility. It is just part of an organization’s physical security processes that protect people and property within and around a building or campus.

National Hospital Week - time to say "thank you"

Wednesday, May 11, 2016 by Josette Lumbruno

Placeholder In observance of National Hospital Week, we would like to offer our gratitude to all who support our hospitals through their dedication and compassion to helping those in need of medical attention.

Wednesday, July 22, 2015 by Josette Lumbruno

The importance of a visitor management system in healthcare facilities

Friday, February 27, 2015 by Josette Lumbruno

PlaceholderDid you hear about the visitor who entered a restricted hospital room without a visitor badge? You didn’t? Great! That means the hospital was following correct visitor management protocol. With today’s health insurance premiums and medical expenses, we are often more concerned with the cost of healthcare than the safety and security of the patients who receive it and the professionals who provide it. There was a time during my younger years when the doctor would make a house ...
