Security measures at Malmö emergency room
Violence and threats are a common occurrence at the hospital's emergency room in Malmö and therefore guards are employed on a 24hr basis, and emergency lock down has been installed along with security cameras. All employees have been given training in self-defence and wear alarms in case they are attacked. The emergency lock down makes it impossible for threatening people outside the building to enter the premises. The reason for these measures is an upsurge in aggressive patients with drug problems and a society where levels of violence are on the rise due to the level of organised crime using lethal violence based in Malmö. In March 2017 the emergency room started locking its door between 2100-0500 to reduce the number of violent incidents involving people who sought to meet or get information about patients.
