Connecticut Children's Medical Center is designated as a Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center that evaluates and treats more than 60,000 children each year. It is one of only two free-standing children's hospitals in New England--and the only free-standing children's hospital in Connecticut--able to provide the highest level of emergency care to children suffering from traumatic injuries. Our pediatric Behavioral Health unit, housed in our Emergency Department, is supported by dedicated medical providers, social workers, nurses and technicians.
The Behavioral Health Advanced Practitioner provides care for pediatric patients presenting at the Emergency Department with psychiatric disorders and challenging behaviors. The Practitioner performs patient histories, physical exams, orders lab and imaging procedures, interprets laboratory values and diagnostic imaging, formulates treatment plans and consults with physician when appropriate. Additionally, the Practitioner is responsible for providing consultation, behavioral assessment, medication evaluation and management to a range of pediatric clients having mental illness, cognitive disturbances and substance abuse disorders in collaboration with the Psychiatrist and social work team.
