    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To determine whether there is a difference in length of stay for patients with affective disorders between private and public psychiatric hospitals.

    Method 

    The casemix Australian national diagnosis-related group (AN-DRG) diagnoses of all inpatient separations from private and public psychiatric hospitals in South Australia for 1 year were abstracted from records.

    The average length of stay for patients with affective disorders was calculated.

    Results 

    There was no significant difference in the average length of stay for patients with affective disorders treated in private and public psychiatric hospitals.
