  1. Quality of antidepressant medications prescribed at discharge to depressed elderly patients in general medical hospitals before and after prospective payment system.

    Article - En anglais

    This study describes the quality of antidepressant medication use at hospital discharge for depressed elderly inpatients and compares quality of care before and after implementation of Medicare's Prospective Payment System (PPS).

    The study reviewed data from medical records of 2746 depressed, elderly, hospitalized patients in acute-care general medical hospitals in five U. S. states (pre-PPS period 2982-82; post-PPS period 298S-86).

    The majority were discharged on antidepressant medication both pre-PPS and post-PPS.

    After PPS' implementation, sedating medications were used less often in all treatment settings.
