Safeguarding Mental Health Patients in Emergency Departments, a White Paper by Jim O’Dwyer, Senior Consultant at AEGIS Protective Services…

I am very grateful for the help and support I received from Michael O’Sullivan and the team at TPSO in getting this White Paper published.

Part and parcel of a Healthcare Security Officer role is that, with little or no notice, they can be tasked with personal responsibility to safeguard (i.e. keep safe) people who are experiencing a mental health crisis. No amount of training can fully prepare them for it. But, that’s not to say that the task could not be made safer – for everyone. This paper sets out how.
