Upon admission and with patient consent, families are contacted for collateral and history. We also provide families with regular updates on their loved one’s progress. Our social work department helps to prepare families for what happens after the patient leaves our care and lets them know what families can do to help with aftercare. Whenever possible, we work to involve families in the treatment process.
The Pavilion also works with each patient’s family to prepare them for the TDO hearing. Family members are able to attend the hearing and be a part of the team that presents on behalf of the patient.
Due to the nature of acute care, family interaction with patients during their treatment is limited. Visitation hours are as follows:
- Monday - Friday 5:30PM- 6:30PM
- Saturday- Sunday 2:00PM-4:00PM
- Holidays 2:00PM- 4:00PM
Special Arrangements and established telephone hours are available through Pavilion Nursing Supervisors.
