Erratum to: Readmission rates of South Korean psychiatric inpatients by inpatient volumes per psychiatrist
BMC Psychiatry volume 16, Article number: 204 (2016)

Following publication of the original article in BMC Psychiatry , it was brought to our attention that the results and conclusions sections in the abstract are incorrect:
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.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.
