An emergency department in western Massachusetts is seeking a locum tenens psychiatrist for consultations. The schedule is Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm, and the facility wants a 6-month commitment.
There are typically 3-5 new patients per 8 hour shift and a variable number of follow ups. The position is C/L both on the medical floors and ED and there is no cap on consults.
The current provider stops taking new consults an hour before the shift is over, unless it's an emergency. At full capacity, this facility has around 120 beds, and the ED has 5 beds for psychiatric patients, but does not turn more psychiatric patients away. Elder patients for psychiatry services generally wait in regular ED beds near the psych area.
