Regarding IP psychiatry for pediatric patients with brain injury:
1. Do you have a psychiatrist on staff who is consulted regularly?
2. Do you have access to a psychiatrist who visits the hospital in person to consult, even if not on staff?
3. Do you have some other psychiatric access and can you describe it briefly?
4. If the answers to the above questions were all no, who on your team medically manages injury related behavioral changes (psychosis, depression, agitation, attention, etc.)?
