Infrastructure

The Reed Pavilion takes in patients who call to receive treatment through the Emergency. It consists of an Intensive Care Unit on the right side and Psychiatric Emergency on the left. Patients are held there for evaluation by a psychiatrist. Usually after diagnosis, if the patient accepts the treatment, he will stay until well enough to return to society. If the patient refuses treatment and the evaluating psychiatrist deems him a risk to himself or society, the patient and psychiatrist are heard by a judge who will confirm or deny a temporary involuntary commitment order. If returned to the hospital, the patient is usually transferred to another unit. One of these units is called the "Centre Psychiatrique Communautaire" (The Psychiatric Community Center) or CPC2. The CPC2 is a place where patients usually stay for a maximum 20 days until they can re-enter the community. Sometimes through court order, the patient may stay longer. The patients receive free room and board, there are 2 TVs for entertainment, a radio, some gym equipment, and some board games. The patients are given their medication at appropriate times and must usually stay until the psychiatrist gives clearance to leave.
