Users of the inpatient psychiatric unit are adults with a mental health problem with or without comorbidities and presenting with disorganization requiring hospitalization to stabilize their symptoms. We have two psychiatric units, one on the ground floor of the Centre hospitalier Anna Laberge in Châteauguay and the other on the 4th floor of Hôpital du Suroît, which serve the population of the three territories of Suroît, Vaudreuil-Soulanges and Haut-Saint-Laurent.
The unit treats all mental health problems that cause instability, with or without comorbidities, and that require inpatient care. Throughout the patient’s stay, the unit provides psychiatric assessment and follow-up, as well as nursing care for the dispensing of medications, stabilization of symptoms, and continuous monitoring of symptoms during the hospital stay. A referral from a doctor is needed.
