Decision-making in the psychiatric emergency room

S. Fennig, M. Neumann

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The decision-making process in the emergency room is evaluated in accordance with the literature and our growing experience. Research until now emphasized correlations among different variables, demographic, clinical, and the individuality of clinicians and systems, on the decision to admit. Many subtle and difficult-to-describe variables were not considered in most of the studies; we have tried to describe some of them. There is a place for clinical research in the decision-making process.
