Summary

This guideline has been developed to minimise the risk of adverse events related to the use of prolonged sedation for adult mental health patients in the WA Country Health Service (WACHS) who are awaiting transfer for specialist treatment. The medication options are designed to be simple to improve practicality of use and likely availability of medications within WACHS sites. It is designed for adults and should not be used for children. For paediatric patients, it is recommended to contact the consulting emergency department physician at Princess Margaret Hospital or Acute Response Team (ART).
