Healthcare Statistics
 In August, 2010, a new survey of healthcare security executives by the International Association for Healthcare Security & Safety (IAHSS) reveals increases in reported violent crimes in hospitals in 2009 compared to similar crimes reported in a survey five years ago.
Although overall crime in hospitals increased by 75% in 2009 compared to 2004, the survey reported that in four categories of violent crime (rape/sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault) it increased by 200%.
In the five non-violent crime categories, which account for 76% of all hospital crime (burglary, larceny, arson, vandalism, and motor vehicle theft), the survey reported a 54% increase in crime incidents compared to 2004.
