Why Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities need Visitor Management
Thursday, November 21, 2019 by Paul Kazlauskas
Security in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities is a critical function.

Our society has witnessed (too many times to count) that incidents of human-created terror or natural disasters can happen anywhere in the world.
