I rec'd several calls today regarding kt's discharge date. I had to remind all concerned that psychiatrist wasn't inclined to discharge kt until all the staffing was in place. We were not to be set up to fail - period! In the meantime, we have expanded the search for Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) or PCAs to 3 different companies. I'm powerless in the contract service area until CADI manager lines things up. psychiatrist, therapist & SW at Residential Treatment Center (RTC) are demanding to know if/and/or when the services will be in place. Are there services? And if they cannot staff those services what is the next move? I finally asked Residential Treatment Center (RTC) personnel if they had any ideas. Because if they had some miraculous staff resource, please share it with me. I'm being pushed to bring kt home by the same people who are saying that kt cannot come home until services are in place. I speak with CADI manager & mental health CM on a daily basis. And people wonder why I need respite this weekend. I'm not even going to address the calls I've taken on behalf of wm. Done venting - I'm trying to talk husband into a snowball fight tonight. To just have fun in the snow. I'm inclined to go out a make a few snow angels.
