Scope of Service
Psychiatry is located on the 7th floor of the main Building. It is a locked unit of 31 private and semiprivate rooms providing general psychiatric and chemical dependency treatment. Only adults 18 years and older are admitted to the inpatient of the Partial Hospitalization Outpatient Program. The average length of stay is 7.6 days. Voluntary patients who have signed a "Voluntary Consent for Psychiatric Treatment" and court ordered involuntary patients are admitted to the unit. The Baylor College of Medicine is affiliated with the unit and assigns residents to the attending Baylor physicians.

The psychiatric facility is designed to provide comprehensive evaluation and treatment of patients with acute psychiatric disease. A multidisciplinary team approach is used with the attending psychiatrist in charge of the team. The psychiatrist collaborates with Nursing, Social Service, Occupational Therapy, Therapeutic Recreation, and Care Management, to complete assessments within the scope of their practice and formulate a multidisciplinary treatment plan. The team is assisted by these auxiliary services, - Pharmacy, Pastoral Care, Dietary and Nutritional Department, Physical Therapy, and any other department identified in the individualized treatment plan. Treatment plans are formulated by a multidisciplinary process that identifies focused and measurable objectives to address the individual needs of each patient while addressing the bio-psychosocial, spiritual, environmental, educational and discharge planning needs of each patient.

Patients are encouraged to participate in a variety of unit activities. The physician evaluates the patient to determine which activities are appropriate. Although all treatment is individualized and flexible, there are two levels for the physician to choose from:
