One thought on “Many Emergency Departments Can’t Handle Psychiatric Emergencies

    Thank you very much for the excellent article on a subject that I have never before seen addressed. It is a subject that I know is tremendously important due to one experience that I had, and one experience that my ex-wife had. These experiences took place at two different hospitals in two different counties.

    I just hope that people in the health care community also read this article, in the hope that the improvements in treatment that you recommend are actually implemented. It was great to see that you pointed out that your suggestions not only benefit the patient, they are also less expensive for the hospital/HMO/or other health care provider. Lower costs is something that will make these improvements attractive for health care providers.

    Again, many thanks!
