2017 Consultation Liaison Inpatient Psychiatry Service
The Consultation Liaison (CL) Psychiatry Service specializes in the interface between medicine and psychiatry. At Cleveland Clinic, the CL Psychiatry Service performs more than 3000 consults annually, evaluating, at the request of the treating medical or surgical team, patients currently admitted as general medical inpatients. The reasons for consultation are varied and may include assistance in the management of delirium, mood, anxiety, and adjustment disorders as well as addiction and capacity evaluations. A majority of consultations are for management of delirium.
