Nowadays hospitals are becoming more prone to fire mishaps and other dangers. How to prevent these mishappenings?


Hospitals are most important public places. Most of the people coming here will have some or the other health related problems. Some may be critical also. Si it is very important to make this place highly secure from any unwanted happenings. But, unfortunately most of the hospitals are not following the rules and regulations laid down by the authorities.

Nowadays, hospitals are more sophisticated and equipped with modern equipments and machineries. In other words, hospitals are using a lot of electricity. There is a chance for a fire mishap due to electric short circuit and in that case the victims will be in a difficult situation to escape. Unlike in other public places like shopping malls and cinema theaters, most of the people in hospitals will not be in good health condition. They may not even able to move out fast. So, special care has to be taken.

Fire hydrants and automatic sprinkler system to extinguish fire should be installed in every hospital. There should be a emergency exit in each floor and sign boards should be displayed every where indicating the direction towards this emergency exit.

Fire detection system consists of smoke and heat detectors, and alarms should be installed. This will help in getting intimation about the fire mishap in the starting stage itself. Fire extinguishers containing dry chemical powder should be provided in every floor. Besides, water foam and Co2 cylinders should be provided near the diesel engine and generator sets.

While constructing a hospital building, the management should provide enough space for the fire tenders to move in all the sides. This will make the job of the fire protection people easier and can avoid damages to maximum extend.

Public evacuation system should be provided for guiding the people in their rush to escape. A proper guidance can decrease the number of casualties to some extend. The staff members should be provided with good training in handling situations and mock drills should be carried out frequently to make them ready to face any situation.

Apart from fire accidents hospitals are highly vulnerable to attacks by anti national elements. If they can catch hold of inmates of a hotel, there is every chance that they may target a hospital too. So, it is advisable for big hospitals to provide X-ray scanners and metal and explosive detectors at the entrance. A closed circuit camera surveillance system will be an added advantage. Nowadays more sophisticated version of these systems is available in the market. Here most of the people will go for the cheaper ones. But you should remember one thing that if the cameras of low resolution, then it is a sheer waste of money and time. It can not be of any use. So go for the high resolution cameras only.
It is advisable to go for a bio-metric access control in service doors. This will prevent the entry of any unauthorized persons in disguise of hospital staff. More over this system can be incorporated with attendance software which will make the job of H.R. people easier.
People with health problems are coming to the hospitals. Let us prevent any sort of unwanted things there. Because, hospitals are supposed to cure a disease, not for making one's life more miserable.
