The results section in the abstract should read: Readmissions within 30 days accounted for 1,598 (4.5 %) claims. Multilevel analysis demonstrated that inpatient volume per psychiatrist were positively related with readmission within 30 days (low odds ratio [OR]: 0.38, 95 % confidence interval [CI]: 0.28–0.51; mid-low OR: 0.48, 95 % CI: 0.36–0.63; mid-high OR: 0.55, 95 % CI: 0.44–0.69; Q4 = ref). The subgroup analysis by diagnosis revealed that both “schizophrenia, schizotypal, and delusional disorders” and “mood disorders” had positive relationships with readmission risk for all volume groups.
The conclusions section in the abstract should read: We observed a positive association between inpatient volume per psychiatrist and the 30-day readmission rate of psychiatric inpatients, suggesting that it could be a useful quality indicator in mental health care.
