Safety & Security Corner
Danielle Sullivan, RN, a nurse on Shapiro 10 East, talks with Tom Smith, CHPA, CPP, president of HealthCare Security Consultants, Inc., about safety and security at BWHC. BWHC hired the nationally-respected firm to comprehensively assess BWH’s security program as part of a detailed review. During the on-site visit, which took place the week of June 8, consultants assessed physical campus security, policies and practices, workplace violence and threat management education, as well as staff engagement. The review was conducted on the main campus, with visits to BWFH, 850 Boylston St., Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center and Brigham and Women’s/Mass General Health Care Center in Foxborough. BWHC leadership intends to share an implementation plan with the BWHC community this summer. Employees are encouraged to always speak up about any concerns by telling a manager, calling Security at 617-732-6565 or emailing BWHSafety@partners.org.
