Security staff and security events/incidents

Sometimes, a hospital may face a security incident.

The most security incident, I believe, is where a relative of a patient assaults their doctor out of frustation after finding out that their doctor failed to save their loved ones. On extreme rare cases, a firearm is found on patient (usually criminals), armed conflict inside hsopital and sort of.

What my suggestion is:
There should be Security Staff. You should be able to hire Security Guards (They should be unarmed at all times, we dont want to turn this game into action lol) whose responsibilities is to oversee the hospital and make sure all visitors, patients, etc are in check and out of trouble. Having no security staff in your hospital should be still a choice but the more you progress, the increased chance to have a security incident in your hospital if you got no or too few number of security guards.

Security guards can be assigned to be posted on a location or assigned to patrol in hospital premises. They should be able to react to nearby incidents and respond accordingly.

Unruly visitors, patients (particularly those who have mental problems) and criminals (handcuffed by the police or they got gun on them) should be dealt automatically by a security guard. Unruly visitors/patients should be a very common incident but criminals should be an extreme rare case to prevent the game becoming action or sort of.

In case of unruly visitors/patients incident, a security guard can be ordered (click and click there) who will then automatically break up any possible fights and try settle them down. Players should eb given the choice to kick them out of hospital temporarily but it could affect hospital reputation. Security guards should react automatically on nearby incidents.

In case of criminal incidents, a security guard either subdues the criminal and confsicate the weapon or radio in police who will deal the matter later. A criminal may actually fight against a security guard but security guards should usually win.

(You might want to remove the criminal incidents as that sounds too complex and too big to script in).

Now, what if I dont have security staff? Well, that would result in doctor's injuries and probably affect hospital's reputation or cost you to pay the doctor's injuries but that should be pretty much.

When can someone be unruly? Random and intended.
Random - A father argues with his daughter's girlfriend for some reason and so on.
Intended - A doctor has failed to save a relative's patient. This should be fifty-fifty chance to turn into heated arguement/fight.

There should be some rare incidents such as, police bringing handcuffed wounded suspect, police placing a BOLO on a suspect and so on.
If a security guards spots a wanted person, they will be able to radio in. In turn, you may get money bonus or improvement on hospital's reputation.

Thoughts?

In hospitals around Australia, this is referred to as a 'Code Grey', Clinical Aggression. However ours dont necessarily come from those who are in attendance with the patient, its likely to be the patient themselves from many reasons but most can be traced back to either Mental Health or Drug Dependency.

Section 351 - Patient that are brought in by Police, and Police remain on site until patient is discharged as its likely they require a bed request to a psychiatric facility.

This is one of the items on our wishlist - but it's pretty low priority.  We want the game to focus more on the hospital management and different kind of medical care and treatments.

Sure, guards/ police/ security service would offer a lot of gameplay options, but ... it's hospital game. There are other games focused on the "protection/ security" aspects Smile

That's perfectly understandable!

It's just.. I know you guys are going for serious and realistic gameplay style of this game (pretty similarly to Mafia 2) so I was wondering if you would add some form of security gameplay option because after all some hospitals, especially private ones have security staff. Smile
