The Riverside University Medical Center Emergency Department (ED) provides emergency medical care in Moreno Valley, California. The hospital receives approximately 85,000 patient visits a year. RUHS Medical Center serves as the first responder in the case of natural disaster for Riverside County. As a designated Level II Trauma Center for adult and pediatric care, the Medical Center treats nearly half of all trauma patients in the County. The medical facility is equipped with a helipad and an on‐site decontamination unit, enhancing the hospital’s capacity to handle any type of health care crisis.
RUHS Medical Center evaluates 4011.6 patients on emergency detention from correctional facilities for behavioral health emergencies. Such patients will be seen in one of three private rooms in the Emergency Department along with a member of Law Enforcement from the sending institution. Importantly, JSA will be providing juvenile detentions as well due to JSA’s capacity for doing child and adolescent emergency telepsychiatry evaluations.
JSA is pleased that RUHS has determined that we can provide the high quality emergency telepsychiatry evaluations the facility is looking for. JSA continues its mission to serve emergency departments, mental health patients, and their significant others … to treat in the least restrictive manner possible … honoring a person’s psychological, social and cultural needs during a psychiatric crisis.
