COVID-19 Update as it impacts Royal Oaks Hospital in Windsor

Unfortunately, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is beginning to be found in several areas of the United States, now including multiple communities and counties across Missouri. At Royal Oaks Hospital in Windsor, we have implemented several measures and processes to help mitigate exposure to our patients and staff. This includes a rigorous infection control program with increased amounts of staff training and education to identify exposure risks, an intensive effort to improve on personal hygiene and frequent disinfection of our hospital, and utilization of precautionary devices such as face masks to be worn by all staff and those patients who may be considered at risk of having a respiratory illness. Royal Oaks Hospital is following recommendations provided by Missouri Department of Health, Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). Our hospital leadership team is closely monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation and modifying our protocols accordingly so that we can ensure our staff are using the most current information to guide us in our hospital operations.

Because we know this virus has the ability to spread rather quickly, we have implemented some very specific changes and protocols to our operations that are targeted at reducing exposure risks to our patients. Those changes include the following:
  • We have implemented a new admission screening review process targeted at reducing exposure risks and diverting individuals with current fever, sore throat/coughing or other respiratory disorders to psychiatric units located in a medical/surgical hospital.
  • We have provided a considerable amount of education and training to our team to identify and isolate patients that might be at-risk of the virus. We will make our best efforts to contain any outbreak that might occur in our hospital.
  • In an effort to reduce exposure risk, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all family visits and move to increased telephone and video communication between family and patients of the hospital. We will continue to do family therapy on a limited basis or via telehealth or telephone.
At Royal Oaks Hospital, providing safe and high-quality behavioral health services is our top priority. It is our goal to remain fully operational for those who need our services during this challenging period of time. If you have any specific questions, we encourage you to contact our Intake Department by calling (800) 456-2634 and we will be happy to speak with you and answer your questions.

Oakwood Hospital opened its doors in 1987 in Windsor, Missouri, with 41 beds.

Under new ownership and a complete restructuring of management and clinical ideology, it became Royal Oaks Hospital in October 1992.

On July 1, 2004, the hospital became a part of the Compass Health Network, allowing the organization to provide a continuum of care to the people and communities we serve.

Q: How long is a typical stay at Royal Oaks Hospital?
A: Each patient undergoes a multi-structured assessment phase shortly after admission. Using the resulting data, the treatment team formulates an individualized treatment plan that addresses the patient’s strengths, needs, abilities and preferences. The length of stay is based on the patient’s ability to meet the short-term goals set forth by the psychiatrist and other members of the treatment team.

Q: Why is the stay so short?
A: As an acute-care hospital, Royal Oaks works to stabilize rather than resolve behaviors. Before our patients leave, a case management professional can help family members schedule followup appointments with an outpatient therapist close to the patient’s home.

Q: Is transportation available?
A: Transportation is available upon request; however, we have limited resources. We will try to accommodate anyone in need of these services, but sometimes it may be more suitable and timely for the referral source or family member to transport a patient.

Q: What ages do you accept for treatment?
A: We are a 54-bed hospital consisting of secured and separate units:
Pre-adolescents (up to age 12)
Adolescents (ages 13-17)
Adults (18 and older)

Q: What insurance do you accept?
A: We accept most insurance, except adult Medicaid for individuals 21 years or older and younger than 65 years. Our Admissions Department can review insurance questions with you.

Q: Do you have to share a room with someone?
A: All rooms are semi-private rooms.

Q: Are patients allowed to have visitors during their stay?
A: Each unit has designated visitation days and times as well as predetermined hours during the day when phone calls can be made and/or received.

Q: Does Royal Oaks Hospital have a detox program?
A: We are a dual-diagnosis program and provide detox services; however, this is not considered a long-term program, and the admitting psychiatrist can require a potential patient be cleared as medically stable before being admitted. Although medications may be prescribed to help with the symptoms of detox, drugs like methadone or Suboxone are not utilized.
