Scheduled Clinical Hours + Call
PROVIDER MUST BE ABLE TO SEE ALL AGES
Provider will see acute patients, ages 5+, in a 19 bed inpatient setting. Average daily census is 10, and patients will be seen once a day, M-F, during business hours (generally 9a-5p with some flexibility). Initial Psych evaluations (1 hour session) are to be performed on new admissions within 60 hours of admit. Subsequent follow ups consist of 15 minute visits for ongoing medication management. Average length of patient stay is 7 days. Treatment team meetings are staffed once a week, every Tuesday, and can last 1-2 hours depending on caseload.
Provider is not required to perform history & physical; we employ hospitalists who perform the H & P, as well as treat any active medical conditions the patient may present with or require ongoing care for. Therapist level team members complete psychosocial work ups within 72 hours, and provide ongoing individual/family counseling, and psychotherapy groups. Our interdisciplinary team of RNs, Mental Health Techs, Activities Coordinators, and other ancillary personal consists of approximately 80 additional team members.
Call rotation is 1 week on, 2 weeks off. During call the provider can expect to receive calls related to provision of emergency medications (i.e. chemical restraints) and requests for admission orders from the intake team. Staff is trained to minimize after hours calls to physicians unless issues are imperative.
Other information: We also have an adolescent inpatient unit, a child inpatient unit, and an outpatient clinic. Those areas are currently staffed, but times do arise when we may need a limited number of patients covered in those areas as well.
