Massachusetts Private inpatient psychiatric hospitals
- Stand a lone Psych hospitals usually use Simplex HTs in the business band and are usually unlicensed
- If the hospital is not attached to a general hospital it will be referred to as a "stand alone"
- Very little formal radio traffic in most of these stand alone hospitals with the exception of radio checks and psychiatric emergencies. Listening to them is not like listening to campus police departments. Most of the radio traffic is by the person's name . Most of the time you will here "Code ____" and thats the end of the radio traffic for that incident.
- A lot of General hospitals are points of entry for emergency psychiatric care (E.G. Section 12s, etc.)
