Where protection and detention are needed : Patient rooms * Corridors * Solariums, day rooms * Toilet rooms * Disturbed wards * Alcoholic wards * Nurses' stations * Observation rooms * Examination rooms * Waiting rooms * Delivery rooms * Emergency rooms * Treatment rooms * Windows accessible to prowlers
