Patients are sent to the network of NeuroPsychiatric Hospitals when they have a serious acute mental episode as well as accompanying medical or neurological disorders (NPH). Those who need treatment at the NeuroPsychiatric Hospital are physically and neurologically ill enough to be admitted to a typical mental health hospital, but they are also cognitively disabled enough to be treated in a regular medical facility. A 55-year-old patient who is severely psychotic, a danger to themselves and others, and has an infectious disease such as AIDS is an example of a patient who might need admission to a NeuroPsychiatric Hospital facility. A 20-year-old woman with severe bipolar illness, a history of violence, and an Autism diagnosis is another example. Finally, a person with a severe type of dementia can be an 85-year-old guy who has Alzheimer's disease, is combative, and has acute renal illness and diabetes.
