The plan of care and treatment for the patient begins prior to admission to the hospital with the information supplied by the community agencies that refer the patient for admission. The care, treatment, and rehabilitation planning process is designed to ensure that care is appropriate for the patient's specific needs and the severity level of the patient's other disease, condition, impairment, or disability.
Biopsychosocial rehabilitation is the treatment approach adopted by Logansport State Hospital. The treatment team provides interventions that focus on mental and physical health as well as psychosocial environments. It is our goal to assist the patient in reaching maximum independence in order to return to the least restrictive environment. Treatment teams are made up of a psychiatrist, nurse, behavior clinician, social service specialist, rehabilitation therapist, and attendant staff.
Each patient's assessment is integrated to identify strengths and problems needing care and treatment. Interdisciplinary treatment teams meet with the patient, family, and/or healthcare representative, as appropriate, to formulate an individual treatment plan to address needs and problems identified through the assessment process. The plan includes goals and objectives with measurable outcomes for each identified problem and need. The plan also consists of treatment interventions to be provided by staff that will assist the patient in achieving their objectives.
Discharge criteria and a discharge plan are also formulated in order to judge the outcome of the treatments determined for each specific patient.
Treatment plans are reviewed on a regular basis by the treatment team and the patient, family, guardian, and/or healthcare representative, as appropriate. Gatekeepers are also encouraged to participate.
Logansport State Hospital’s treatment interventions are provided for mental and physical health and in the psychosocial environments of working, living, leisure, and socialization based upon the assessed needs of the patient.
