II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The purpose of this project is to build a storage structure to house the needs of the Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital, four (4) Las Vegas urban site clinics, four southern rural mental health centers, and all other agency-owned structures at the West Charleston Campus. An enclosed yard will also be built to charge and house agency golf carts used to transport staff, supplies, medications, and medical records back and forth on the Southern Nevada Adult Mental Health Services (SNAMHS) campus. This new structure will be built on state property closest to the Rawson-Neal hospital, and will contain at least one office and one restroom.
Project Justification: The Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital was built with minimal storage space for 190 inpatient beds. The entire hospital 68,632 square feet with only 1040 square feet allocated for storage space. Therefore, in a 190-bed acute inpatient psychiatric hospital, only 1.5% of the building is allocated to storage space. The patients seen at the hospital have more specific needs themselves. Many of the patients are homeless or have alienated themselves from family members. Due to this, many patients present all their belongings upon their admission, and the facility must store for them until discharge, further exacerbating the storage situation. This lack of storage space also results in the inabilliy to purchase items in bulk so the agency cannot take advantage of volume discounts and decrease operating expenses. Currently, the agency is utilizing a small building a small building that is shared with another neighboring agency, the Desert Regional Complex (DRC), for their storage needs.
Project Background Information: The 190-bed Rawson-Neal Psychiatric Hospital was opened in August 2006. This project was previously submitted on April 1st, 2008.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced:
Year existing equipment was installed:
Manufacturer of existing equipment:
Model of existing equipment:
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): If this project is not approved, the agency will continue to buy in small quantities from vendors. This will result in higher prices because of additional shipping charges and the inability to take advantage of volume discounts. The inventory control system will continue to be less manageable and less efficient. The agency may be forced to rent storage containers which may not be equipped properly for the different types of supplies involved. Staff will continue to transport supplies in an inefficient and cumbersome manner where small storage niches are located and used throughout the campus. Without a dedicated storage facility, there will be an increased chance of an accidental and intentional supply and equipment misappropriation between SNAMHS and DRC as they currently share a small storage building.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): If this project is approved, the risk of transporting large supply materials long distances will be greatly reduced. Key supplies necessary for emergencies would also reduce any possible damage caused by an emergency environmental safety issue. Patient supplies that cannot be stored on the hospital unit will be able to be readily stored in the new storage building and be secured from any possible theft. In addition, a dedicated storage facility would prevent any accidental and intentional supply and equipment misappropriation between SNAMHS and DRC if their assets are stored separately at different locations.
