The relationship between depression and length of stay in the general hospital patient.
American Psychiatric Association. Annual meeting. New York NY (USA), 1990/05/17.
Depression is believed to complicate the care of general hospital patients on medical and surgical wards.
How to compare dissimilar medical disorders and the degree of illness has been problematic.
All patients evaluated during a 6-month period by one consultation-liaison service who received a DSM-III-R diagnosis of depression were retrospectively compared with a control goup without any depressive symptoms who were matched by primary diagnostic related groups (DRGs) and had equivalent severity of illness scores (APACHE II).
