Response:

1. In 2015, how many times were security guards called to deal with patients with dementia? We hold no records of attending to incidents that solely deal with dementia, in many instances the ward staff do not relay the patients details so security staff would be unaware.
2. If possible, please state the reason in each case.
3. If possible, please state what extra equipment was used such as handcuffs or restraints.

 

If it is not possible to provide all the information requested due to the request exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please only provide the information requested under point 1.
