Psychopathology and pain in medical in-patients predict resource use during hospitalization but not rehospitalization.
The authors investigated the relationship between psychopathology and resource use in general medical in-patients during hospitalization and rehospitalization.
Between 1 July 1987, and 30 April 1989, 1020 in-patients were prospectively screened for depression, anxiety, cognitive dysfunction, and pain.
Overall, the screen identified 47% of patients as having high psychopathology or pain, including 25.7% depressed, 21.8% anxious, 17.6% with cognitive dysfunction, and 5.2% with high pain.
There were no measured differences in demographics or disease severity between high and low psychopathology groups.
