Acute and Sub-acute inpatient units provide geriatric patients, who are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others, a safe and secure environment managed by a multidisciplinary team of geriatric psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, recreational and occupational therapists.
Each patient's individualized treatment plan includes group, family, recreational and occupational skills groups. Discharge planning begins on admission and establishes an effective treatment plan and support after discharge from the Medical Center.
Long term care services are also available at Bergen Regional Medical Center should the need present itself. (make long term care services link to the long term care section)
