Inpatient Psych refers to acute psychiatric care in a hospital setting and includes psychiatric assessment, treatment, and medication stabilization. Patients receive treatment from a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, mental health professionals, and nurses with the goal of providing patients a protective environment to stabilize an acute psychiatric illness while developing a treatment plan and medication stabilization. While in an Inpatient Psych Unit, patients are treated by a psychiatrist, psychiatrically trained nurses, and mental health clinicians in both a one-on-one and group setting.
