The patient presented to the ER for the second time on 8/22 via law enforcement for aggressive behavior after she assaulted a staff member at the group home and attempted to bite, throw things, and hit staff upon arrival to the ER resulting in restraints and IM Zyprexa. She had been in the ER earlier in the day after intentionally swallowing a rock in an attempt to get out of her group home and was subsequently discharged back to her group home following psychiatric assessment. Of note, she presented to the ER 3 additional times over the week prior to admission for similar presentations and is well known to the ER due to multiple presentations of pseudoseizures, aggression, and suicide ideation.
She was admitted to the unit after her group home provided a suspension of services notice with the requirement of medication adjustment to be completed in order to return to the group home. Medication adjustments were made, and she has been psychiatrically and physically stable since at least October though she is not able to return to her group home until additional staff are hired and trained. The patient is beginning to decompensate with the prolonged length of hospitalization.
Recommendation is RTC-
Avanti -referral made, accepted, can admit next week -just waiting county funding
North Homes- referral made
Gerard- referral made
