Abstract:

Part 5 Psychiatric Patient Classification Subsystem addresses the development and testing of a multidimensional factor-evaluation designed patient classification subsystem for psychiatric clinical services. The Psychiatric Patient Classification Subsystem has been developed and tested through four years of rigorous field research. This quantitative subsystem measures direct nursing care activities and determines the best mix by skill level of care providers for psychiatric inpatients. The Psychiatric Patient Classification Subsystem utilizes the factor-evaluation design, is multidimensional, and is designed for automated or manual implementation. Extensive validity and reliability studies demonstrate that the Psychiatric Patient Classification Subsystem is valid and reliable.
