Emergency Department Convenings

The Baltimore City Health Department convenes the Emergency Chairs and Directors quarterly. Previous areas of discussions include discharge policies, opioid intervention programs in the emergency departments, and the stabilization center.

  • The Baltimore City Health Department has created a discharge resource tool kit for ED providers. This short tool kit contains information about the New Homeless Street Outreach Card, a Homeless Client Checklist, 24/7 Phone Hotline for Addiction & Mental Health, and the Opioid Crisis Service Unit.
