Adding Windows for Patient Safety

The Department of State Health Services in Texas will be spending more than $100,000 to retrofit 336 doors in 10 psychiatric state hospitals. This comes in hopes to increase patient safety and prevent patients form being abused by staff.

The 2-by-3-foot windows will be installed on doors of treatment rooms where patients receive individual therapy and other services.

Cameras will also be installed in offices where the doors can not be retrofitted.
