Description

The Mental Health Service Older Persons (MHSOP) has a 16 bed specialist inpatient unit located at Te Whare Ra Uta on the Kenepuru campus.

Each person admitted to the inpatient unit has a primary nurse and associate nurse assigned to them; they are usually also assessed by the medical staff on the day of admission, and later during the admission, as the need is identified, by other members of the multidisciplinary team.

Usually there are at least two meetings made with the family of people admitted to the inpatient unit; the first within the first fortnight for a progress report and the final meeting to clarify discharge planning.
