Safewards is a new model of care designed to reduce conflict and containment in adult mental health inpatient units
We have developed two differently worded information panels regarding safewards. One is to be displayed in the ward, generally in the day area or lounge. This indicates the Safewards model from the Service User perspective.
The second is to be shown in the staff environment, generally the Nurse’s office explaining the procedure regarding Safewards to Staff.
This combination of notices makes sure Safewards is understood from all angles and helps it to be successfully implemented.
The versions indicated can be adapted in both format and content to suit your ward
