As part of an ongoing commitment to communicate with the BWH community about hospital safety and security, BWH Bulletin will feature regular updates on issues and answers to frequently asked questions. This week’s Q&As focus on safety throughout the distributed campus and what to do if you have a concern.
Q. Will the external security consultant include the distributed campus in its assessment?
A. Yes. The distributed campus will be included in the security evaluation, with visits to 850 Boylston St., Foxboro, Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital and Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center. The consultant will also provide a framework of security for all distributed campus locations, with best practices for each type of building, such as a stand-alone practice, an office building and a health center. Leadership will then determine how best to implement the findings of the evaluation to all sites throughout the distributed campus.
Q. What should I do if I have a concern about security in my work area?
A. Please start with your local leadership—your manager or supervisor—and have an open conversation about your concern. Directors and supervisors can bring the concern to senior leadership when appropriate. You may also email BWHSafety@partners.org with non-urgent questions, concerns and suggestions. For urgent or emergent matters, call Security at 617-732-6565.
