"You mean there's no IT staff in the hospital at all? That's your problem there I reckon, no secretary either who could be trained to run a simple program, my oh my no wonder hospitals are so rushed."

Hate to say it, but...that's exactly the issue! No solution can hire additional people because there's no budget for it. You MUST use existing people or it'll never make the budget. In a hospital, security plays third fiddle (to saving lives and cutting costs) and there's no way you're going to change this in the medical culture. The first priority is sacrosanct due to the Oath of Hippocrates while the second priority is imposed by the men up top.
