Youth facility can take new patients

A moratorium on new admissions to Manatee Palms Youth Services in Bradenton, Fla., has been lifted, according to Psychiatric Solutions Inc., which owns the 60-bed facility.
Last month, Florida authorities halted admissions to the intensive residential treatment facility for children and adolescents after finding that administrators hadn't made promised safety improvements.

Manatee Palms continued to treat existing patients while working with Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration to implement changes required for the moratorium to be lifted, its officials said. Effective immediately, the facility will begin accepting new admissions and referrals.

Franklin-based Psychiatric Solutions operates mental hospitals nationwide.
