Description

Many threats exist in the clinical setting, a place primarily known for healing and restoring health. The wide range of threats include cybersecurity risks, natural disasters, physical or verbal violence, bioterrorism threats, and diseases that have the potential to cause an epidemic or pandemic. In the process of writing this paper, I reviewed various articles from sources which ranged from news articles to research journals. I began with reviewing research articles to learn about the specific disaster mitigation policies in place and then moved to news articles to show how these policies, or failure of these policies, impacts everyday life. I feel that this is an important topic to discuss because it is not widely discussed in the medical community. We practice with the guidelines and security measures in place, but often do not look at the entire system outside of the role that the individual provider plays. As a practicing healthcare professional, it is paramount to understand the origin and modification of the safety measures that are in place. This literature review explores each of these security threats and discusses measures or policies in place to mitigate these threats while protecting the safety of healthcare workers, hospital staff, patients, and visitors alike.
