Hospital Patient Door Behavioral Health Rescue Hardware
There are almost 6,000 hospitals in the US. Of those,
approximately 30% house an in-patient psychiatric or
behavioral health unit. And almost 8% of US hospitals are
dedicated to behavioral health. Add to that the vast number
of specialized clinics and out-patient treatment offices. Needs
may vary widely in the area of behavioral health: from children’s
units to adult therapeutic environments. Many requirements
are common to all types of facilities, including code compliance.
Behavioral health is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis,
treatment and rehabilitation of those who may exhibit
aggressive or self-destructive behaviors. One of the main goals
of behavioral health is to keep patients safe during recovery
or rehabilitation. Security and safety are critical challenges as facilities accommodate others who work in or visit these
environments - whether family, clinical and professional staff or
environmental services personnel.
