- ● Hospitals are not tied into a minimum hours contract giving them staff flexibility.
- ● We stay onsite 24/7 for as long as needed or until the patient is discharged.

We RECOGNISE the difficulties and stress experienced by nursing patients with dementia and delirium and also what a worrying time it can be for the patients family and friends.
We UNDERSTAND how patients unfortunate enough to be suffering from this awful condition can inadvertently disrupt the efficient working of a hospital ward and how easy it is for them to be confused, challenging and demanding.
We KNOW how much that patient’s safety is paramount and essential to the care they need and deserve.
We DELIVER a valuable and unique service to the NHS that is an amalgamation of two roles, that of ‘Security’ and ‘Care’. Our staff are called ‘Safety Guardians’ and it is their job to ensure the patients safety whilst they are in the hospitals medical care.
