Notes on Methodology

Analysis based on data maintained by the VPCH admissions department from paperwork submitted by crisis, designated agency, and hospital screeners. Wait times are defined from determination of need to admission to disposition, less time for medical clearance, for persons on warrant for immediate examination, applications for emergency exam, and court ordered forensic observations, waiting for inpatient admission. Wait times are point in time and are categorized based on month of service, not month of disposition, for clients who had a disposition to a psychiatric inpatient unit.
