Medical supply theft is a reality whether thieves are looking to pocket masks, gloves and sanitizer or are stealing medical equipment. That’s why a proper security solution is crucial to protecting your medical equipment and supplies.
In fact, during COVID, hospitals across the country were forced to lock up personal protective equipment and sanitation products to prevent theft and ensure their staff had the supplies when they needed them. Even large city hospitals have seen thieves force their way onto the property and take equipment valued at $1.2 million.
And medical supply theft doesn’t just affect the hospital’s bottom line. It affects staff safety and patient health. Thieves have also targeted medical clinics, family doctors and specialist offices.
Luckily, there are ways that medical businesses and hospitals can protect their organizations from medical supply theft.
