2. Canines in Hospitals
We here at K9 X-Factor, specialize in hospital security because it has been proven canines have curtailed security issues by ninety percent. Study after study has proven canines are the most effective tool to curtail security issues within hospitals.
Did you know hospitals lead workplace violence more than any other industry? Canines are a proven answer to many issues within the hospital community. At K9 X -Factor we believe canines can make the real difference in Nationwide. Canines being used in this industry have been successfully used in Hospitals on the East Coast for years.
According to many hospitals in the Midwest and east coast, canines have made a noticeable difference in making employees comfortable in emergency rooms and trauma centers within each facility. One security director from the mid-west stated the following “The main thing that would make a facility decide to have canines is the comfort level of employees”, “When you get the trauma staff feeling relatively safe, that’s a tremendous element when it comes to safety. The psychological value of having canines on the property has a rewarding effect on security.”. In another scenario why canines are so effective was from a Southern California hospital.
Since acquiring dogs none of the 11 parking lots have experienced any mugging, robberies, rapes, or assaults despite being one of higher crime areas in San Diego.
Canines were so effective when it comes to getting control of a lobby after a gang incident. The dogs and handlers were very effective in dispersing two opposing gangs in the emergency lobby area. Dogs may appear more frightening than armed security. Within 30 seconds after the dogs arrived on the scene with their handlers you could not hear a pin drop between the two gangs.
Dogs have the advantage because gang members consider getting stabbed or shot a badge of honor but a dog bite is a form of disgrace. All our staff are retired police or military who have the expertise to use dogs effectively. All our dogs are friendly first and only go into protection mode when the need arises. Elderly, children and everyone in between can pet our dogs and we welcome it. Our dogs can be goodwill ambassadors to your hospital but when the need arises will protect your employees and patients. Canines are more effective than standard, armed, and in some circumstances more effective than police. At K9 X-Factor we know canines are the best choice in reducing security issues at your hospital.
