LETTER: Hospital firearm policy is dangerous
It appears the policy of Health Central Hospital in Ocoee to ban firearms in their facility is fraught with liability and a potentially huge settlement from civil litigation. Whatever happened that caused them to install signs to the Emergency Room entrance that bans firearms is a mystery to me. It requires folks to empty their pockets and purses in search of banned items. Security guards are on hand to enforce rules and regulations. But, at all the other entrances, there is no such procedure and security other than a small nondescript sign that states no firearms allowed. There lies a huge flaw.
