What harm issues do you expect or have you experienced?

Staff are trained in verbal and physical deescalation. They have access to fast-acting sedatives. The center also has a room that is suitable for seclusion and restraints, but it is rarely used. Because a risk assessment is done upon arrival, the clinician quickly determines next steps, and turns away or transfers patients that may be a risk to others. The center cannot take patients who may traumatize other patients, or harm staff.
