The motivation behind the redevelopment of the Royal Melbourne Hospital Emergency Department Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs Hub was the urgent need to provide increased support to Victorians struggling with mental health, alcohol and other drug issues.
The expansion allowed for 6 more beds within the alcohol and drug hub, 6 behavioural assessment units and a new treatment room for patients. This new hub will ensure faster urgent mental healthcare support, specialised care and support, and emergency facilities that create a safe and modern healthcare.
Given the hospital's role as a large emergency facility dealing with patients facing mental health, drug and alcohol challenges, it was crucial to ensure that the tapware and sanitaryware were suitable for high-risk areas.
Our specialised anti-ligature and vandal-resistant water solutions were tailored to meet the specific requirements of the project. These products not only mitigate the risk of self-harm and vandalism but also enhance usability, contributing to the creation of a normalised and secure environment for patients. This endeavour aligns with the hospital's mission to provide faster, more specialised, and secure urgent mental healthcare support, offering a modern and safe healthcare facility for those in need.
