  • Why Safe Storage Matters at Your Hospital

    Posted on November 13, 2013 by admin

    Every hospital – from a small community clinic to a major metropolitan hospital – generates documents that are important enough to safeguard from disaster. And with critical medications, patient files and HR records too, safe storage isn’t something your hospital can afford to ignore.

    For productivity, efficiency, patient safety and staff security, safe storage is an important hospital priority. With changing HIPAA legislation, digital and cloud storage debates and prescription drug abuse, issues surrounding hospital storage security are frequently in the headlines. Security safes are more important for hospitals more than ever before.

    To protect your patients and keep your staff safe, plus ensure confidentiality and integrity of critical files, security safes matter for your hospital. We can help you meet your pharmaceutical storage needs, and FireKing meets your file storage needs – both offering the highest quality storage cabinets. Five reasons why secure storage matters for your hospital:

    1. Stay compliant with changing legislation.

    The CSA (Controlled Substances Act) puts drugs and other substances into one of five categories or schedules of drugs with Schedule I requiring the most security and Schedule V the least. The new Safe Prescribing Act of 2013 impacts drug storage, requiring all pharmacies to use a DEA-approved safe for hydrocodone-based painkillers. If passed, under this act, hydrocodone will become a Schedule II substance, requiring your hospital to store these substances in a security-rated safe.

    SafeFile.com, along with NarcoticsSafes.com is your trusted source for safes that meet the Schedule 1 - 5 requirements for drugs and narcotics, plus safes in compliance with these new regulations. Choose from a variety of models rated TL-15 and Class 5 for the storage of these narcotics.

    And HIPAA legislation governs how your hospital stores patients’ critical, confidential records – both hard copies and electronic versions. Keep integrity, availability and confidentiality in mind as you strive for the best in patient service.

    Secure file storage in an accessible, fireproof, lockable storage cabinet prevents information tampering or alteration by unauthorized users.

    2. Security safes add an additional level of security.

    The potential threat of robbery, burglary and internal theft is a true concern for many hospitals. Pharmaceuticals, documents, valuable equipment and more are all at risk. To combat this threat, many hospitals have safety precautions in place, like surveillance, camera and alarm systems. A security safe for your medications and files adds another level of protection. By securing your hospital’s valuable assets, the risk of criminal activity is greatly decreased.

    3. Security safes prevent drug mishandling and promote access control to files.

    When your pharmacy uses security safes, you keep both patient files and prescriptions in the right hands and out of the wrong hands. Security safes let hospital leadership and HR departments determine who does and does not have access, so you can ensure that only permitted staff members can get to these valuable medications and records. Furthermore, security safes keep medications distributed to patients only – and keeps confidential patient information between only the practicioner and patient.

    4. Maintain an organized inventory of medications and files.

    Disorganization of files and medication can lead to mislabeling, mishandling and even dangerous mis-prescribing. Security safes and file storage keep your hospital running efficiently, with the right medications in the right storage areas. Furthermore, organized storage reduces the risk of patients receiving incorrect prescriptions.

    5. Secure storage offers peace of mind – and puts patient care first -- in case of catastrophe.

    No hospital is immune to the threat of natural disasters, including storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. Should the worst occur, your staff can focus on caring for patients, knowing that patient files and pharmaceuticals are stored safely and appropriately. Brand names like FireKing, Securall and Hamilton Safe offer secure storage that’s natural disaster ready.

  • 4 Reasons Accounting Firms Secure Vital Documents

    Posted on November 6, 2013 by admin

    Accounting firms large and small generate and maintain critical information and documents daily. And how these documents are stored is increasingly important. In the Sarbanes-Oxley era of regulatory and legal compliance, great amounts of corporate data are being recorded, categorized and archived.

    Vital records are defined as “those records containing information that is essential to the survival of an organization in the event of a disaster or business interruption.” All are important enough to safeguard from disaster.

    To protect your firm and clients, plus ensure availability and confidentiality of critical files, security safes matter. Our team recommends FireKing fireproof file cabinets to meet your file storage needs efficiently at a smart price. Here are four reasons why your accounting firm needs secure storage:

    1.     Have critical records secure and on-site for immediate access in emergencies. Records legally considered “vital” are only a small percentage of the vast amount of recorded data created by a typical business – usually about five percent. Accounting organizations, however, will have a much higher proportion of active vital records files.

    For an accounting firm, a sudden catastrophic event like a fire, flood, theft or other disaster can have repercussions that reverberate far beyond the original event. In addition to repairing damage and resulting difficulties re-establishing normal operations, accounting firms’ clients may have also experienced damage, in a large-scale regional disaster, for example. These clients may immediately need some of the functions the accounting firm provides – and the client records that the firm maintains. Secure file storage in an accessible, fireproof, lockable storage cabinet ensures that in the face of disaster, your firm will have all its documents secure and available.  Vital records protection matters not only to your firm, but also to your client base as a whole.

    2.     Stay compliant with vital records regulations and recommendations.

    The IRS and United States Security and Exchange Commission both require all accounting records to be kept for a minimum of seven years in case of an audit. While these government bodies don’t specify what type of container the records must be stored in, accounting organizations make recommendations and suggested guidelines for firms to follow. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) suggests fireproof records storage in their general financial records-keeping procedures.

    3.     Add an additional level of security for confidential, critical documents.

    Secure file storage in a securely locked, yet accessible, UL rated fire safe file cabinet prevents information tampering or alteration by unauthorized users. The potential threat of robbery, burglary and internal theft is a true concern for any business – and with such confidential data on hand, accounting firms are at extra risk. To combat this threat, your office may have safety precautions in place, like surveillance, camera and alarm systems. Add an extra layer of security for those critical client financial documents, reports and other items with a security safe for your files adds another level of protection. By securing valuable documents, the risk of confidential information getting into the wrong hands is minimized. 

    4. Secure storage offers peace of mind in case of catastrophe.

    Keeping client and company documents safe from fire, flood, theft or other disaster requires attention before the unthinkable occurs. No business is immune to the threat of natural disasters, including storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and fires. Should the worst occur, your staff can focus on clients and business reestablishment, knowing that critical documents are stored safely and appropriately. SafeFile.com and FireKing offer secure storage that’s natural disaster ready.

  • Three Important Requirements for your HIPAA Checklist

    Posted on May 6, 2013 by admin

    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, known as HIPAA, ensures the confidentiality of health information. This set of federal regulations for the safety, security and integrity of personal, private and confidential health information governs both electronic and paper records.

     As your office focuses on quality care for your patients, adhering to HIPAA guidelines matters. Keep integrity, availability and confidentiality in mind as you strive for the best in patient service.

    Integrity

    Integrity means maintaining and ensuring the accuracy, reliability and consistency of patient data and information. Reliable health information allows for accurate diagnosis, prescriptions, care and procedures.

    Keep information integrity at the forefront by creating consistent, easy-to-follow procedures for data collection. Whether electronic or handwritten, forms, charts, flowcharts and appointment information sheets can ensure accurate information is collected the first time.

    Upon data collection, maintain integrity with proper file storage both for electronic health information and paper records. Many healthcare offices choose ioSafe hard drives for data integrity. Secure file storage in a lockable, fireproof storage cabinet prevents information tampering or alteration by unauthorized users.

    Availability

    Record availability indicates that information is accessible and useable upon demand by an authorized person. This is where convenience makes security. Patient information must be accessible, so store these critical documents in an organized, easy-to-access location. Staff should be able to quickly find these items when patients or medical practitioners need it or request it.

    However, availability is incomplete without security. Only authorized staff members should be given access to these files. Secure, easy-to-access file storage helps your office attain availability. Electronic and hard copy information should be stored conveniently, but never at the expense of security. The ioSafe N2 private cloud makes an excellent choice for the doctor, dentist or remote hospital care office to secure and protect data from fire, flood and other data availability risks.

    Select a lockable file storage cabinet and place it in a smart location in your office. Keep this file locked at all times and make it available to only personnel who consistently require it.

    Confidentiality

    Every employer, hospital, office and employee is required to ensure the confidentiality of health information. Because of this, individuals in organizations who have access to health information must sign confidentiality agreements. Private practices should put files back in storage as soon as doctors and nurses are finished with them. Furthermore, files should not be left on counters, desks or locations where unauthorized people can view them.

    All paper files should be kept in closed, locked, fireproof storage. This ensures that only authorized staff members can view them. KL Security is pleased to offer the FireKing record storage cabinet, which is lockable to promote confidentiality and control access.
