September 1, 2017

Your safety is our priority.

Whether it is the safety of our patients or the safety of our staff, we are working towards being recognised as the safest adult health service in Australia. To help reach this goal, the Royal Perth Bentley Group (RPBG) is launching Safety September – a whole month dedicated to safety and wellness at Royal Perth and Bentley hospitals.

Each week for the month of September we will be focusing on one of the safety topics below:

  • Week 1: Consumer engagement – with a particular focus on falls prevention, cognitive impairment and pressure injuries
  • Week 2: Staff wellness
  • Week 3: Infection prevention
  • Week 4: Medication safety.

Keep an eye out throughout the month, as there will be interactive and informative displays on the Royal Perth Hospital Level 3 Bridge and in various Bentley Hospital wards. Everybody is welcome to join in, whether you are a staff member, a patient or a visitor.
