Phone Guidelines

There are pay phones on the Adult and Adolescent Units. Children use the phone at the nurses’ desk to talk with their families, guardians, and others. The child’s therapist will help the child decide who to call.

  • To respect the interests of each patient, phone calls are limited to 10 minutes.
  • Calls coming in during group sessions will be returned in order to not disturb the group.
  • A patient who needs a longer call or a call during group time can make plans with their therapist.
