Emergency Psychiatric Services
The Emergency Psychiatric Service provides 24 hour per day coverage for psychiatric emergency consultations to the Adult and Pediatric Emergency Rooms, all outpatient medical and surgical clinics during the business day, and all general adult and pediatric medical and surgical inpatient units from 5:30pm to 8:00am during the week and all day on weekends and holidays.  It is manned by the psychiatric resident on call (pager 7032) with psychiatric attending supervision by telephone.  The resident serving on the Consultation Service provides back-up during the business day if there is an excessive number of emergency consultations called in.
