Bronx Lebanon Hospital Shooting: No turnstiles installed 1 year after shooting

Ed Hartnett discusses hospital security and active shooter planning with ABC 7's Jim Hoffer.

Nearly a year after a deadly mass shooting,  no security turnstiles have been installed at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital. Ed Hartnett explains the importance of turnstiles in hospitals as a crucial deterrent method, "The turnstile involves access control badge swiping, so a former employee's badge would activate and the turnstile would prohibit entry." Hartnett said the fact that the active shooter entered the hospital using his old identification badge adds to the need for Bronx-Lebanon to get turnstiles installed.
