  1. Crisis beds : The interface between the hospital and the community.

    Article - En anglais

    The main role of the crisis unit at a state psychiatric hospital was found to be the provision of brief hospitalisation for patients with adjustment disorders and personality disorders.

    The four bed crisis unit treated 14% of all patients admitted to the hospital, with an average length of stay less than three days.

    A study of 78 crisis unit patients found that 77% were able to be discharged directly to the community, and only 18% were readmitted during the following six months.
