Corrections Connection: This Week In Corrections


Mentally Ill Inmates

>>what's your opinion?

In Ohio, mentally ill Inmates are placed on a Residential Treatment Unit or RTU case load. They are seen by Mental Health Caseload teams. The MHRN disepenses medication to them and is a part of the RTU treatment team. They do not contact family members for anything regarding the Inmate. The treatment team developes a plan of action to assist the Inmate in dealing with the Mental Health illness. It would be up to the Mental Health professional to notify family members of any problems with the Inmate, not the nurse.
