Boone County Hospital Planning Mental Health Safety Room

Read Time:2 Minute, 11 Second

The upcoming holiday means an increase in the number of people in Iowa hospitals. Health professionals say they see more people facing a mental health crisis. Boone County Hospital plans to respond with a safe room. This is a space where people with behavioral health problems can go and still receive care. It is set so that patients will not harm themselves or anyone else. Lisa Paige, director of inpatient services, said this is something they have needed for years. It sounds simple, but the list price is $160,000. She said this is not only for the hospital, but also for the community. It allows patients to be closer to home and their support system while receiving care. “In view of the current shortage of care for all nursing staff, our ability to dispatch a staff member to ensure that patients are as safe as possible is weakening. We just don’t have enough staff to continue the process,” Page said. They need money to achieve it. This is the origin of this Friday’s Harvest Festival. The hospital’s foundation actually threw it out because of COVID-19. It will start a fundraising campaign in the safe room. You can visit this website to participate.
