Our patients may have visitors from 1:00-2:00 p.m. and 6:00-7:00 p.m. daily. They are broken into 30-minute increments to allow more availability for patients to have visits. We ask that visits be pre-arranged prior to visiting. This can be accomplished by dialing our direct line, 304-264-1230 and requesting a visit. Visitors are approved by the patient and physician and are limited to close family members and/or support persons involved in therapy.

Arrangements for visiting times to accommodate special circumstances are made through the therapist, nursing staff or attending physician. Visitors should call for special arrangements.

Each patient may have 1-2 visitors at a time. Visitors must be 18 years of age or older. Identification is checked prior to each visit and personal belongings will be secured in individual lockers.

We request former patients do not call or visit patients currently on the unit unless the current patient’s treatment team determines the former patient who wants to visit is an active member of the patient’s support system. Other forms of communication between current and former patients (gift giving, writing, phone calls, etc.) are strongly discouraged.

In order to allow for the completion of numerous patient assessments and to enable the patient to become engaged in his/her treatment, visiting may occur after the first 24 hours of hospitalization.

Our 23-bed inpatient treatment unit, located on the third floor of Berkeley Medical Center, is designed to meet the acute mental health needs of patients ages 18 and above. We accept voluntary and involuntary patients. Patients are admitted 24-hours a day through our Emergency Psychiatric Services. We offer a caring, supportive and respectful environment while maintaining strict patient confidentiality.

Emergency Psychiatric Services

Clinically Supervised Mental Health Professionals are available 24-hours a day to provide crisis intervention and complete psychiatric assessments for patients of all ages; these are reviewed with the on call provider.

Emergency Psychiatric Services (EPS) Crisis Workers provide a range of services including

  • assessment and referral of patients to the appropriate level of care
  • case management with referring facilities
  • facilitation of communication between the Emergency Department, or referring facility, and to ensure timely service
  • pre-authorization of insurance coverage when needed

If you have any questions regarding the Behavioral Health Program, outpatient resources, substance abuse treatment options or involuntary commitment, an EPS Crisis Worker is always available by phone.

Involuntary Commitment Process

If you have a family member or friend that is in significant need of hospitalization due to a risk of harm to themselves or others, you have the option of filing a petition for commitment. This process includes completing the petition application, having it notarized, and contacting East Ridge Health Systems. From that point, a crisis worker at East Ridge will connect with the Mental Health Commissioner to present the completed petition. If the Mental Health Commissioner grants a hearing, the person filing the petition will be contacted and will appear as a witness at the hearing. If the person being filed on is deemed committable, the person will receive inpatient mental health services until they are documented to be stable and safe as determined by a psychiatrist’s evaluation. Documentation for filing a petition can be obtained through the Behavioral Health Unit at Berkeley Medical Center or by contacting East Ridge Health Systems at 304-263-8954.
