There is a limited amount of storage space on the unit; please try to limit the number of personal items brought from home.


We provide three meals and one snack each day. Please inform the staff of any dietary considerations, food preferences, or allergies your loved one may have so we can do our best to accommodate.

Crisis Intervention

Any kind of violence, real or pretend, including verbal threats, is not accepted on the unit. We do not allow cursing, yelling, and adhere strongly to our ’no touch’ policy on the unit. We also do not tolerate sexually inappropriate behaviors and language. We want all of our patients to feel comfortable and safe on the unit at all times. In the event that any of these behaviors occurs, staff intervention may be necessary. Our staff are highly trained in verbal and physical de-escalation strategies, and will only use these tactics when absolutely necessary.
