Private hospitals have increased security staff in emergency rooms

clinicas monitoreoCaracas’ private hospitals begin to close their doors between 5:30 pm and 9:00 pm, leaving access only through the emergency room. A few security guards, growing in number lately, oversee the areas that remain at risk all night. Security measures vary depending on the hospital’s location.

The use of more technological tools and a bigger staff are common features in all private health centers looking to increase their security and keeping their staff and patients protected against Venezuela’s raging crime. So far, the most common incident is mobile-cell-snatching.

“All large private hospitals have CCTV. The crime rate is variable in Caracas, some areas have a much higher incidence, such as San Bernardino, while the east side is standard”, said the executive director of the Venezuelan Association of Private and Public.
