RQIA Independent Review of Child and Adolescent Mental Health ...

Criterion 2.4.8 - All incidents of under 18 admission to adult mental health facilities are reported to RQIA: outlining why

the admission to an adult facility was unavoidable; details of consideration given to placing the young person in more

suitable accommodation; the length of time it is expected that the young person will be in the facility; and confirmation

that a full risk assessment has been undertaken and the details of the precautions being taken to protect the young

person within the adult facility.

All trusts appear to use different processes and formats of reporting to RQIA. The Western Trust provides a comprehensive policy

indicating how the trust will ensure the safety and developmentally appropriate care in accordance with circulars from DHSSPS.

This is to be commended.
