Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Hospitals, like all employers, are highly vulnerable to lawsuits for negligent hiring and for negligent security when a serious incident, such as a murder, occurs. In this article, the author, an applicant-screening expert, discusses in detail an actual case in which a security officer was murdered. He reviews the lessons learned to help security professionals mitigate the risk of avoidable claims of negligence.
