  1. Constant observation in a medical-surgical setting : The role of consultation-liaison psychiatry.

    Article - En anglais

    Constant observation (CO) is commonly used in general hospital settings to protect patients who are at risk for harming themselves or others.

    The role of consultation-liaison psychiatry in the implementation of this procedure is often assumed, but has not been well studied.

    The authors report the findings of a 6-month study of the use of CO in a general hospital and discuss its implications for quality of care and, possibly, cost-effectiveness.
