ED Boarding of Mental Health Patients
April 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm
THA will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 26, from 10 to 11:30 CT to discuss the results of a recent study committee between THA and the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS) dedicated to the issue of emergency room boarding of mental health patients. Presenters from the TDMHSAS, THA and hospital members of the committee will review newly-developed guidance for crisis services and emergency hospitalizations as well as emergency department treatment protocols for patients experiencing mental health crisis. All Tennessee hospitals are invited to participate in the treatment protocols pilot program, which begins in May.
Information about the project, including the project report, the crisis services guidance and the ED treatment protocols, will be sent to all webinar registrants in advance of the event.REGISTER NOW
