This setting could be discharge to home, Structured Outpatient Program, In-patient at Phoebe or another appropriate facility.
Inpatient Behavioral Care Units
Inpatient services are divided into two areas: Geriatric Unit (4E) and Adult Unit (3E). The units provide services to individual’s ages 18 and older that have been diagnosed with an acute psychiatric illness and need immediate intervention.
Treatment Team and Programs
The treatment team is the core to the success of services and recovery. Under the direction of the psychiatrist, the team is comprised of a program director, nurse manager, nurse practitioner, nurses, case manager, social worker, activity staff, and a staff of mental health technicians and certified nurse aides who have medical/surgical and psychiatric experience. The treatment team meets regularly to initiate an individual treatment plan, review each individual’s progress, coordinate care, and discharge planning. The treatment team works closely with the client and families to locate and arrange the best possible placement for each patient.
A strong emphasis is placed on relapse prevention, which includes a crisis care plan, with wrap-around services to facilitate a successful discharge from the inpatient unit. The discharge plan will assist the patient in maintaining their optimal level of well-being.
