General Safety Notification for RQHR Physicians, Staff, Clients and Visitors

06-Mar-2017

The personal safety of our physicians, staff, clients and visitors is always very important to the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region. The RQHR has many sites with several of the facilities being 24/7 operations. RQHR Security & Parking Services would like to remind ‘everyone’ to be aware of their personal safety whenever arriving at or leaving any of our facilities.

We encourage everyone to practice common sense personal safety techniques.  Take precautions when walking to or from a building such as walking in pairs or in a group whenever possible.

Be aware of your surroundings, watch for suspicious behaviour and don’t be afraid to remain in a building or in your car if you feel uncomfortable.

Security Services conducts mobile patrols in and around RQHR facilities and will continue to be vigilant to ensure the safety of everyone accessing RQHR healthcare facilities.

When available, Security Services will provide escorts to physicians, staff, visitors and clients from RQHR buildings to their vehicles or public transportation.    Physicians, staff, visitors and clients are encouraged to utilize Security Services for an escort to their vehicles if they have no one to walk with them.

All staff are asked to assist any client or visitor in contacting Security Services for an escort. Contact numbers for Security Services are provided below.

If an incident occurs, staff should report the incident to Security Services immediately.

Security Services contact numbers:
