Came to our ED solely due to not having another placement. Has boarded in our ED in the past. Was previously at Bar None Shelter plus where she assaulted others and was taken to JDC. Was in JDC for a week when a judge ordered her to be removed, so CPS brought her to the ED as they had no other place to go. CPS is searching for group home placement as that is what the County’s juvenile screening team deemed the appropriate level of care.


Came to our ED after physical altercation with another resident at Prairie Care Residential, can not return there. History of multiple inpatient admissions and PHP. Grandma is guardian and pt is unable to return there due to another child living there that pt can’t be placed with. CMH worker has made multiple RTC referrals and patient has been denied by almost all. Currently looking into a RTC out of state in TN, however this provider does not have a contract so would be a long time before this placement was obtained. Also looking at shelter options.


Patient has a history of DMDD, PTSD, ADHD, intellectual disability with FSIQ of 50, TBI, as well as seizures and psychogenic non epileptiform seizures who presents from group home where she has been aggressive and threatening to staff and other house mates. She attacked another resident there. This resident is pursuing legal charges. The patient continues to describe intent to harm other residents and staff if she goes back there, as she wants a different group home. The group home has given letter of termination and suspension. Hennepin County is patient’s guardian. County is looking into previous respite home she was at as an option, as she did really well there prior to coming to this group home 1 month ago. This same situation occurred with the same group home last fall where they terminated her and brought her to the ER.
