When I visit my husband at Bradshaw, they surprisingly (but it's great that they do have) a walk-thru metal detector at the entrance. Just like at the airport, they make you take out all metal things, take off shoes, take off coats, etc. They even made my infant son take off his shoes and go thru the metal detector as well (it was funny looking - I had to "dangle" him thru the metal detector first so we went thru one at a time). Then they pat you down.
