Adolescents psychiatric inpatients : characteristics, outcome, and comparison between discharged patients from a specialized adolescent unit and nonspecialized units.
We have recently studied the outcome of school-aged children treated in day hospital and inpatient psychiatric units using four operationally defined preadmission child and parent/family variables as predictors of outcome.
Our studies have provided considerable support for these preadmission variables singly and/or in combination in predicting poor outcome in school-aged children in these hospital settings.
The present study describes the prevalence of these variables are their ability to predict outcome in two groups of adolescent psychiatric inpatients in the same hospital: one group placed on a specialized adolescent unit and one group placed on other inpatient psychiatric units.
