Working alone at Waypoint: maximum insecurity

Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care includes a maximum-security forensic division for patients who have been found not criminally responsible or unfit to stand trial by the courts. 

Workers say patient-on-staff attacks are becoming more frequent and more severe.  Yet caregivers often have to work alone, which puts them at a greater risk for violence.

Waypoint needs safe staffing levels that would allow caregivers to work in pairs at all times when providing care.
