Laurel Oaks Behavioral Health Center utilizes a multi-disciplinary team approach to patient care that emphasizes making a high level of coordination between health care providers. A multidisciplinary team of professionals is responsible for the provision of care to our patients:
While each unit has a dedicated team of staff who serve only the patients on their unit, other departments serve and support all units in the facility. These departments include Psychiatry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Education, Medical Records, Dietary, Environmental Services, Maintenance, Patient Advocate, Activities Therapy, Administration, Staff Development, and Human Resources.
Other programs/services operate facility-wide and involve staff from all departments and/or patients from all units such as infection control, employee health, and numerous committees (i.e. Patient Safety, Risk management, Performance Improvement, etc.). Staff members from all of these departments and programs work collaboratively to ensure that operational goals and expectations are met.
