Emergency Room Staff

Offering A Nurturing Environment For Mental Health Treatment

Life-saving work takes place in emergency rooms, made possible by the work of staff that goes the extra mile to help patients overcome injury and illness. This includes the efforts of doctors, nurses, medical aids, administrative staff, social workers, and members of the discharge team.

Unfortunately, emergency rooms and hospital inpatient units are not the best place for long-term treatment after the immediate danger has been addressed.  

Mental health patients often stay in the hospital’s inpatient unit for 3-10 days depending on their symptoms and the stability of their circumstances on the outside. Such patients are not permitted to leave the hospital until appointments for follow up care have been scheduled with outside providers.

When the time comes to explore discharge options, it is important to find a source of follow up care that matches the unique needs of the client you are looking out for. This is backed up by sobering statistics:

  • 80-90% of patients experiencing PTSD have at least one comorbid disorder
  • Patients with PTSD are 6-7 times more likely to attempt suicide
  • 50-60% of patients with PTSD engage in non-suicidal self-injury
