Enhancing Security in the Tower
Starting Wednesday, April 25, a new security system in the Tower will automatically lock inpatient units after hours and enable staff to quickly lock down a pod in the event of an emergency. Pods will automatically lock 9 p.m.-6 a.m., requiring badge access for entry. Staff will screen visitors via intercoms and remotely grant access during these hours. There are no changes for pods currently locked at all times. Learn more at BWHPikeNotes.org.
