A number of the psychologists at The Arroyos are on the Staff at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena. The Arroyos’ comprehensive co-attending and co-admitting privileges to psychiatric, chemical dependency, general medical and emergency room sections of the hospital means that our Arroyos doctors can choose the treating physician when a patient is to be co-admitted to the hospital. Arroyos psychologists direct patients’ psychological treatment in the hospital, directly manage and provide psychological services, manage discharge plans to lower levels of care, as well as consult with the patient’s primary physician and other hospital medical specialists. LPS conservatorship services and 5150 (involuntary hold) services in the hospital can be provided by our psychologists as well.
Some Arroyos psychologists also provide consultation-liaison services in the medical section of Huntington Hospital. Consultation-liaison involves providing a psychological evaluation and treatment, when indicated, for patients who have developed psychological symptoms after they have been hospitalized for a medical condition such as a heart attack, a head injury, an operation, or the delivery of a child.
