Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose was to examine service providers' perceptions of factors contributing to frequent psychiatric hospital readmission for individuals with severe mental illness and the system's capability to intervene regarding those factors. The study used a quantitative survey completed by 25 staff in an inpatient psychiatric hospital. Staff rated the capability of the system to intervene lower than the frequency of occurrence of most readmission factors, indicating that interventions are insufficient. Results were especially significant for substance use, medication noncompliance, and poor psychiatric follow up, with staff tending to view these factors as high in frequency but low in terms of the system's capability to intervene. Increased funding and outpatient services were suggested by participants.
