    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    Because current Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act regulations influence the disposition of US nursing home residents who have mental illness, National Nursing Home Survey (1985) data are analyzed for predictors of mental health service use.

    Methods

    Elderly residents' rates of mental health service use are presented.

    Logistic regression yielded odds ratios for treatment by both mental health specialists and general practitioners for client and service system variables.
