Comparison of psychiatric day hospital patient and inpatient scores on the MCMI-III

Comparison of psychiatric day hospital patient and inpatient scores on the MCMI-III

Journal of Clinical Psychology 53(6): 629-634

This study contrasts self-reported symptomatology on the MCMI-III of a sample of 97 psychiatric patients admitted directly to inpatient care with a sample of 75 patients admitted directly to day hospital treatment. The predominant Axis I diagnosis of patients in both samples was an affective disorder. Effect sizes of the degree of change from admission to retesting one week later were calculated and fell generally within the medium effect size range. There were no MCMI-III subscale differences between groups at either test time. A test item dealing with suicidal ideation did differentiate between the groups, with inpatients expressing more suicidal ideation at admission.
