Mode of admission

Admission to the day hospital can be requested by psychiatrists from the local catchment area, those from other areas, freelance psychiatrists, general practitioners or psychologists, by simple letter or telephone to the unit’s doctor. We will propose an initial appointment to the patient, and a letter of acceptance or rejection for the checkup will be sent to the referring doctor.

Admission assessment and individualized therapy project

After admission, the patient goes through a two-month assessment period consisting of a medical evaluation (psychiatric and somatic), a cognitive assessment by a psychologist, and a nursing, social and functioning assessment. Following this observation period, the patient is offered an individualized therapy project including therapy objectives and activities associated with issues raised by these assessments. One copy stays in the patient file, and another is sent to their referring clinician.

The patient’s clinical evolution and therapy project are discussed every month by the medical team. Two yearly evaluations are intended to gather the various health care professionals taking care of the patient (nurses, social support services, guardians, etc.). The referring clinician will receive every year a mail with information on the project evolution.
