Ethnic differences in emergency psychiatric care and hospitalization in a program for the severely mentally ill.
Ethnic differences in rehospitalization were examined in a program of intensive services for severely mentally ill hospital recidivists.
The purpose was to determine whether ethnicity-related differences in psychiatric admissions observed in national data would appear among clients at great risk for hospitalization but enrolled in a program of case-managed care to promote community adjustment and tenure.
After accounting for differences in prior emergency visits and hospitalizations as well as sociodemographic and clinical differences, blacks were found more likely than whites to visit the psychiatric emergency room and to be hospitalized.
