Medical evaluations are conducted as part of the intake process for patients presenting at our South Central Rehabilitation Clinic. During the medical evaluation, a highly trained nurse will conduct a systematic physical assessment being observant for any signs of recent trauma. The client will be evaluated for any medical or psychiatric history, including an assessment for suicidal/homicidal ideation or risk. The nurse will obtain a substance abuse history and treatment history. Next steps are dependent on the outcome of the medical evaluation.
