What is inpatient psychiatric care?
Inpatient mental health care provides necessary care to patients in residential settings. Residential mental health care centers feel homey and are equipped and staffed to provide space and resources for sleeping, bathing, dining, recreation, and treatment.
Patients are cared for and tended to around the clock and scheduled for daily check-ins with nurses, counselors, and providers in group or one-on-one settings.
Is there only one type of inpatient?
Patients in residential psychiatric treatment centers are not all on the same regimen. An residential mental health center allows for individualized inpatient mental health treatment in a group setting.
What type of staff works at an inpatient mental care facility?
Inpatient centers are staffed by therapists, patient care workers, social workers, registered nurses, psychiatrists, and peer specialists. A rounded staff provides each patient’s care to be comprehensive while also providing the necessary resources for all patients in residence.
