Protective services officers are trusted to provide a safe and secure environment for all staff, patients, and visitors. They control access within and out of the health facilities and report or investigate irregularities. They are expected to respond to emergencies appropriately. Occasionally patients may act in a manner that is harmful to themselves or to others, and protective services officers may be called upon to assist clinical staff with patient interventions. As part of their risk management duties, they also educate others through presentation of in-services specific to individual safety & security.
Protective services officers work at a variety of health and community facilities, including hospitals and clinics. The job may be physically and emotionally demanding due to the various emergencies and the stress they may bring.
They may work full-time or part-time hours. Shift schedules may include a combination of day, evening and weekend shifts.
