Mentally-Ill Patients Get Re-Hospitalized More

The Canadian Institute for Health Information has reported that one in three cases of mentally ill patients get readmitted within a year.// The following observations were made after studying the statistics relating to hospitalization and patient readmission rates during the year 2003-2004.

Among those mentally ill patients readmitted, 45 percent of patients were those with a personality disorder and 41 per cent of people with schizophrenia and one in five had a substance-related disorder such as alcoholism. Generally, these patients were younger and more likely to be male.

Patients with mental illness constituted about six percent of all hospitalizations. It was also found that the average length of their hospital stays were more than double the length of others.

The risk of readmission increased with age. The longer the initial hospital stay, the greater were the chances of readmission within one year.

'So the impact of being hospitalized for their mental illness or being readmitted to a hospital would have some effect on their working life and their family life.'
