Title: Chart audit of inpatient treatment of schizophrenic patients: implications for development of coordinated care paths.
Authors: Anders, R L
Olson, T
Issue Date: Jul 1998
Abstract: This study offers important information regarding the standard of care provided to schizophrenic patients treated at one inpatient facility. The findings were particularly useful in the development of a care path for this specific population. Areas for improvement identified in this research include medical tests, master treatment planning, documentation of care, patient teaching, and discharge planning. Given the limited health care dollars and the lack of a cure for schizophrenia, this research emphasizes the fact that treatment guidelines need to be aggressively tested as to their relevance to practice.
