The Psychiatric Consultation Service provides psychiatric consultations to the Emergency Department and inpatient medical and surgical units throughout the hospital. We are available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The multidisciplinary team includes psychiatrists, psychiatric clinical nurse specialists, a psychiatric nurse case manager, Harvard Medical Students, and psychiatric residents in the Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Residency Training Program. We actively assess, diagnose, and make treatment and aftercare recommendations for patients who present with psychiatric symptoms or who develop psychiatric symptoms during the course of their hospitalization. We collaborate with staff in these settings to best serve these patients while they are in the hospital.
