The relations and nominated friends of the mother are issued with a card and may enter during permitted visiting periods.
All entries and exits are monitored and recorded for future reference if required.
When the mother leaves, the cards of all relatives and friends are automatically voided.
All staff would be issued with their own cards and gain access in the same way.
This would be a start and would allow for security to other areas to be extended. Not only must patients be protected, our staff have the right to work in a safe environment.
