Abstract

Three systems of psychiatry staffing for a large, urban teaching hospital are evaluated over three separate six‐month periods. Results indicate that housing a psychiatry department staff member in the emergency room is accompanied by significant changes in the recognition of psychiatric symptoms and referrals. Implications for emergency room morale are discussed. 1982 American Orthopsychiatric Association
