Preparing for Admission

While calling the YNHPH Admissions Office (203.688.9907 for both inpatient and outpatient services) will provide specific information and answer any questions about our admissions policies and procedures, there is other important information on this Web site that can help prepare patients before, during and after their stay at the hospital.

Preparing for a Patient's Visit

Such information includes knowing what to bring (and not to bring), our location, driving directions, parking, interpreters and translation services, billing and insurance. This site offers important information for visitors as well.

Upon admission to an inpatient unit, patients will receive a preliminary assessment focusing on safety needs, receive orientation to the unit and programming, and will be provided with an Admission Packet that further outlines information regarding hospitalization. Patients will then be assigned to a treatment team whose members will oversee the comprehensive assessment and treatment plan during the hospitalization.

Due to the highly structured nature of the inpatient treatment setting and for patients' safety, meals are initially provided on the unit. Based on patients' safety needs and clinical progression, patients may eventually partake in supervised dining in the hospital cafeteria. Patients may also have opportunities for supervised outdoor time in our courtyard depending on their clinical progression and safety needs.
