The BRT Background

The BRT has been developed in response to the need for improved management of behavioral patients at GHS. On average, the security department receives 3 duress calls per day, that is 90 calls per month, and nearly 1100 per year. The security department is an essential part in maintaining the safety and security of staff and patients throughout the hospital.
