Quality of care for psychiatric emergency service patients presenting with substance use problems.


Psychiatric emergency service assessments of 683 patients were observed to better understand the quality of care substance users receive and the effects of clinicians' attitudes toward their patients on such care. Findings run counter to those of previous reports in that substance users, once recognized, are likely to receive better care than other patients.
