Detox Referrals – Mr. Allen

Mr Allen will pick up your patient requesting detox from 8a-10p, 7 days per week. All abuse substances are eligible (alcohol, opiates, benzodiazepines) though they prefer not to detox cocaine alone or marijuana alone, but who needs detox from cocaine or marijuana alone? No one. They are always also using alcohol or opiates, so call Mr. Allen.

917-532-8918 or 917-806-8049

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share some information with you about making detox referrals. We in the psych ER have been working with St. John’s Riverside for a while now, and I spoke with their transportation person Mr. Allen (cell 917-532-8918) earlier this week about our likelihood of making more referrals now that North General has closed and we are likely to get more patients needing detox (and he did say he had been getting more calls from us over the last couple of weeks).  He told me that St. John’s has 54 detox beds as well as 30 rehab beds.  They are rarely full, and thus usually able to take our referrals.  If for some reason, they are unable to take a referral, he will work with us to find another suitable location (often ACI, but other facilities like Beth Israel also).  St. John’s takes most insurances, but not self-pay (these people would need to be referred to a city hospital like Bellevue, Metropolitan, Harlem).  Mr. Allen can be called from 8am-10pm seven days/week and provides transportation from our ER to the detox facility.  I’m sure he’d be happy to answer any additional questions anyone has and I’d also like to say I’ve personally found him to be very responsive and helpful and I think he and St. John’s can be good resources for us going forward.  Also, for those of you doing shifts in the psych ER, please indicate when you’ve referred someone to detox by writing a note in the comments section on the patient log.  Thanks.

Respiratory Therapy Pagers

1. Respiratory Therapy has a designated emergency pager: 1112

Page 1112 first, at all times.

If that pager doesn’t get you the response you want, page the respiratory supervisor: 2244.

2. If you have any concerns about a respiratory therapist you’re working with, get his or her name and send me an email. I will bring it up with their leadership.

3. The hospital has approved two PB840 ventilators designated for the ED. These high end machines do mechanical ventilation and non-invasive ventilation well and are used in our ICUs. We are expecting to have the two-machine commitment deployed within the next month. When that happens, we will streamline our stocking so that all equipment in the ED will be for this machine and attachments for the half-dozen other machines you have seen floating around the department will be removed. This should greatly improve our stocking and facilitate emergency physician-initiated NIV and MV.

In the meantime, if you have any issues with respiratory stocking, email me.
