5. Emergency Department At Wake County Hospitals
None of these hospitals has a mental health inpatient unit, but they will check your child for any medical problems and determine whether or not your child or teen needs to be involuntarily committed to a psychiatric unit at another facility.
(WakeMed does have a special behavioral health team that works with patients in the ED though.) If your child is determined to need involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital, staff will locate a bed either in Holly Hill Hospital, UNC Wakebrook, or in another hospital which may be as close as Durham, Chapel Hill or Rocky Mount or as far as Jacksonville or Asheville.
Your child can expect to wait in an Emergency Department room for an average of 2 to 3 days.
After your child or teen is assessed by the ED Psychiatric staff, it will be determined if they need be admitted to a state psychiatric hospital such as Central Regional Hospital in Butner, or Strategic Behavioral Health Garner or not.
Your child's transport to and from the psychiatric inpatient facility will likely be by law enforcement, or contractor transport staff.
