Boarding Psychiatric Patients

emDocs - November 10, 2016 - Author: Chavez S - Edited by: Koyfman A and Long B
"...When it comes to managing boarding psychiatric patients, keep these pearls in mind:
  • Restart home medications.
  • Reassess patients at least once during your shift.
  • Make sure the patient remains medically clear.
  • Get a good history and physical!
  • Use your community and facility resources to help disposition and treat patients.
  • For a great review article on psychiatric medications to use in the ED for agitated patients, check out “The Psychopharmacology of Agitation: Consensus Statement of the American Association for Emergency Psychiatry Project BETA Psychopharmacology Workgroup” by Wilson, et al."
