Utility of Self-Report Personality Measures in Prediction of Length of Stay (LOS) on a Forensic Inpatient Unit

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Patient length of stay (LOS) in psychiatric inpatient services has become one of the most popular but least understood predictors of treatment efficiency and total cost of care. The current study explores associations between patient clinical and demographic variables, with emphasis on clinical scales of self-report personality measures, as predictors of LOS on an acute care forensic inpatient psychiatric unit at a major metropolitan hospital in New York City. Results indicate potential utility of MMPI-2 and PAI measures in prediction of LOS with forensic populations.
