SRMC to upgrade visitor photo ID system
Beginning July 15, Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC) will require government-issued identification for all visitors as part of an upgrade to its electronic visitor management system.
The current system requires that visitors be photographed upon arrival. With this system upgrade, their photograph may be obtained using a government-issued photo identification card such as a driver’s license, state-issued identification, military identification, or passport.
“This upgrade will help to expedite visitor check-in and offer an array of security features for our patients, guests and the organization,” said Alisia Oxendine, director of Guest Services for Southeastern Health.
A printed, self-adhesive badge allows access to the specific area where the visitor is allowed access. The system also checks internal and external watch lists to deny entry to any unwarranted visitors.
Visitors may enter the facility and be issued a badge at each of the three public entrances: bed tower information desk, registration desk and the emergency department host/hostess desk.
SRMC visitation continues to be limited due to COVID-19. Learn more about the current visitation guidelines.
