The Safewards program at Rockingham General Hospital (RGH) is leading the way as winner of the Innovation solutions for improving safety and quality prize at this year’s WA Health Excellence Awards.

The program was implemented in the mental health inpatient unit in an effort to reduce conflict and containment. The model has a strong evidence base, and the successful implementation and results at RGH further reinforce the value of the program.

These awards showcase the quality care our hospitals and health services provide to the community, and this initiative was one of many from the South Metropolitan Health Service recognised for making a difference.

Congratulations go to the Rockingham General Hospital Safewards Program team for this deserved recognition of their hard work.
