What is the staff/patient ratio?*
The Coastal STARS facility can accommodate 16 residential patients at full capacity. There are a variety of staff members who come into contact with residents throughout their stay, including clinicians, nurses, administrative staff, peer support, and counselors. However, certain positions have prolonged supervisory contact with patients. While creating the correct staffing model for the Coastal STARS facility is still in progress, the Lebanon STARS facility’s ratio is approximately one staff person with prolonged supervisory contact to three residents and we anticipate a similar ratio on the coast.
