We are seeking a board certified or board eligible psychiatrist to provide locum tenens coverage for a high security prison in Ohio. The average daily case load is 16 patients per day for outpatient and 5-6 in the residential treatment unit. The assignment may also require on-call services by phone after hours during emergencies, but this would be rare. The nature of the work environment will require clinicians to move around a great deal, and we will accept candidates with full or part-time availability. Full-time candidates may be asked to devote some hours to assist with remote coverage at another prison. Locum psychiatrists for this assignment will be part of a multidisciplinary team that includes psychologists, social workers, nurses, and security staff. Duties will include prescribing medication, writing mental health evaluations and reports, reviewing and interpreting labs, requesting mandated medications, and participating in multidisciplinary treatment team meetings. Dictation software is used to dictate notes into electronic health records, but locums should be proficient with keyboards as well. Candidates selected for this assignment will be expected to submit a drug and TB test within 48 hours of work order acceptance, and results must be made available prior to starting work.
