"Least restrictive practice is not being adhered to"

About: Rampton Hospital / Mental Health Service

(as the patient),

Some of us male patients IN MH are asking the question of when the shop is going to get back to normality.

Why can we only buy toiletries from the shop when we physically go down and that is once every two weeks. We fully appreciate that smaller numbers must go to the shop but to run out toothpaste and soap, shower gel, washing powder is not acceptable. Other patients are not allowed to bring it back for us either, this is embarrassing.

We want to buy fresh fruit but unless a ward staff can pick it, we can’t get it as its classed as a perishable item. We can put on our shopping sheets 10 bars of chocolate though. Why is the chocolate not back in the shop for us to buy ourselves? We do have capacity to make decisions this has come up time and again and it is not fair and nothing gets done. Least restrictive practice is not being adhered to in this instance. could someone explain what is going on please.

HI Thank you for raising this,

We have a road back to recovery from the Covid pandemic and some of this relates to returning to safe practice.

However, this has not been raised that you are unable to collect or obtain toiletries or your normal items so I will look at this and ensure this is reviewed with a better outcome.

Please give me a week to reply with what the hospitals plans will be

thank you for raising this

Hi there,

I am updating you on your query

The shopping was to return to normal in line with the Government road map on 21st June.

This will have to be reviewed this week as this has now changed.

I am hopeful that we can continue with some of our road map including the shopping times as this would not be too much of a risk for us to manage.

you will be informed of the out come by the end of this week as this communication will go out site wide with the updates

in the meantime I will ensure that if you run out of essential item such as toiletries that you are able to get them from the shop

Regards

Adele
