Security solutions for the healthcare sector

In clinics and care facilities, both narcotics and patient data must be controlled in a legally compliant manner. Details on the legally compliant storage of narcotics can be found in the guidelines on measures for securing narcotics supplies (“Richtlinien über Maßnahmen zur Sicherung von Betäubungsmittelvorräten”) as stipulated by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM), which we have made available for you here.

Protection of patient data

When it comes to the protection of patient data, there are no uniform security provisions in place; however, standards do exist in Section 203 of the German Penal Code (StGB) and the professional regulations for doctors. Generally speaking, attending physicians are legally obliged to maintain a duty of confidentiality towards their patients and not pass on information obtained in connection with the treatment to third parties. As a result, it is important to ensure that patient data is protected against unauthorised access.

Our solutions in action

Safes for the healthcare industry
All solutions under one roof

Clinics, care facilities and other health facilities are sure to find the ideal safe solutions to suit all areas. These include narcotics safes that are certified according to EN 1143-1, fully compliant with all specifications of the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM), and fitted with medicine drawers on request. All of these are available in various sizes and designs, including models that are suitable for installation in modular cabinets.

We offer a large selection of burglar-proof and fireproof strongboxes for use in office environments. Our range of products for private rooms also includes premium-quality room safes and energy-saving minibars.

Secure storage for narcotics –
in clinics and care facilities

The storage of narcotics in hospital subunits (such as wards), doctor’s surgeries, and retirement and care homes requires a strongbox with a minimum resistance class of N (0). Lower requirements only exist for storing BTM quantities that do not exceed the average daily requirements of a single subunit.

When it comes to storing narcotics in hospital and public pharmacies, the minimum requirements stipulate a strongbox with resistance grade I or a strongroom door with resistance grade III or better.

Our narcotics safes are available in a whole host of different sizes and designs that can be installed as a free-standing unit or integrated into a piece of furniture. These ensure legally compliant storage of narcotics in areas such as:

  • Public pharmacies
  • Hospital pharmacies
  • Hospital subunits (such as wards)
  • Doctor’s surgeries
  • Retirement and care homes
  • Pharmaceutical companies
  • Pharmaceuticals distribution

Room safes –
Security for patient valuables

A serious problem encountered by many hospitals and care facilities is that of theft from patient or resident rooms. When it comes to the secure storage of valuables such as watches, mobile phones and cash, it is therefore strongly recommended to provide room safes for your patients’ peace of mind.

As a specialist in room safes, we have supplied our products to more than 500,000 guest rooms in clinics and hotels over the years! HARTMANN room safes are both reliable and intuitive to operate. What’s more, our range also includes a variety of different models in various sizes and configurations for installation in cupboards or drawers.

Minibars
for added convenience

For your patients in private rooms, why not offer them maximum security and convenience with the addition of a minibar alongside their room safe? HARTMANN TRESORE minibars are energy-vibration-free! HARTMANN designer minibars with Peltier technology operate in line with energy-efficiency class A and are amongst the most economical and silent minibars on the market.

Storing patient data
securely in line with data protection requirements

In accordance with Section 10, Paragraph 1 of the German “BO ÄK SH/MBO-Ä” regulation, doctors are required to document all patient treatment in full*. These records then have to be kept for a period of 10 years (Section 10, Paragraph 3). At the same time, however, doctors also have a duty of confidentiality towards their patients (Section 9, Paragraph 1). For this reason, stringent security standards apply when it comes to handling patient files and data to prevent unauthorised parties from accessing the confidential information.

In the case of hard-copy patient files, we recommend storing these in burglar-proof and fireproof strongboxes. Of course, these are also ideal for storing any other important documents, such as employee data and contracts. Electronic data carriers have to be stored in special data media safes with a certain level of fire protection for sensitive storage media.

If one of more safes are not enough for storing patient data and other documents, then an archive is the obvious solution. With this in mind, the options include strongroom doors for securing entire rooms or sections of a building, or modular strongrooms, which can either be set up independently within a building or else as an adaptation to an existing room.

Of course, we would also be delighted to develop the perfect security solution to suit your needs!
