We have a locum tenens opportunity in California for an adult psychiatrist to provide coverage for a psychiatric evaluation center (PEC). Similar to a psychiatric emergency room, the PEC is a 24-hour facility in which the psychiatrist has the flexibility of 8, 10, or 12-hour shifts, Monday through Friday. The staff consists of nurses and recovery related support care, including case managers and therapists. Individuals are brought to the PEC if they are deemed to be at risk of harming themselves or another person. The PEC houses individuals for up to 23 hours while they are evaluated and it is determined whether or not an inpatient stay is required.
