We have our 1st team meeting tomorrow afternoon for Hillside. The psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, case manager, unit manager, teachers, and lead staff members will all be there.
We will set his goals and objectives for discharge requirements. He will need to meet ALL of them consistently for three weeks at Hillside, in home visits, and in the community.
We will also discuss the plan for a “strip down” or “wash out” of his current medications. Then meds will be reintroduced and closely monitored and adjusted, using daily blood testing measurements to analyze the metabolic rate of each medication.
I am excited, wary, apprehensive, and hopeful all at the same damn time.
