Crisis Observation Unit

  1. Just curious if anyone on here works on a psychiatric crisis observation unit? Or, familiar with the unit? The unit I will apply for is a 23 hour observation unit. What goes on in the unit? What duties do you do?

    The one I am familiar with is only for children and adolescents. Your main duties are admissions and discharges Other than that, chat with them, play a game, de-escalate etc. The rooms at my facility have their own TVs, so many kids never bother to venture out :P
