Job Description:

Adult Forensic Inpatient Psychiatry Locums Job - Acute Psychiatric Program Hospital - California Details/Requirements: *218-bed licensed Acute Psychiatric Program inpatient hospital and a licensed 114-bed Intermediate Treatment Program *Provide quality mental health evaluation and treatment to patients/inmates who are referred from prisons throughout the State of California. *Need is for 40 hours per week, 4 tens only. *Hours: 8am to 6pm, Monday through Friday. M, T, F are mandatory, and the doctor can choose either W or Th. *On-call duty only during shift. No after hours call. *Acute inpatient experience is required. *Must be well versed in psychopharmacology and Axis 2 disorders. *Average daily caseload for the Doctor is 15 patients for Acute and 35 for Intermediate, but may vary. *On the acute units the average patient load is 15 assigned patients (although there are some units where it is 16 or 17; on one unit there are actually 20). *On the intermediate units the average patient load is 32-25 patients, depending on the unit. *In most cases the Psychiatrist does not see every patient every day. *The general expectation is that patients will be seen twice a week on the acute units and once a week on intermediate. *There are so many variations to each unit and Psychiatrists float to other units periodically, that it is hard to give a very strict guideline on the number of patients seen in a 10 hour day. *On a slow day it might be as low as 3 to 5 patients, and on a busy day it can be 15 patients or sometimes more. *There is a great team of Psychiatrists and they help each other out on those busy days, so it is not usually too overwhelming. *Average one new admission and one discharge per week. *Average length of stay is 60 to 75 day
