Arizona State Hospital Consultation

In FY 11, the WICHE Mental Health Program completed a study for the Arizona State Hospital in Phoenix. The objective of this consultation was to evaluate and make recommendations to improve Arizona State Hospital’s security department and its functioning in supporting the hospital environment, including the safety and welfare of patients, residents, staff, and visitors of the campus. WICHE was also asked to examine and make recommendations to improve interactions between patients, residents, medical staff, visitors, and security personnel on the campus of the Arizona State Hospital and Arizona Community Protection and Treatment Center.
