The national alliance of mental illness (2014) states that psychiatric inpatient treatment facilities are designed to be safe settings for intensive mental health treatment including observation, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy and medication management. Inpatient treatment should be part of an overall plan of care, a coordinated effort between the individual, the family or other supporters, the inpatient treatment team and outpatient service providers. Geriatric psychiatric inpatient treatment is a resource that has demonstrated great clinical impact. Inpatient admissions have significant value in clarifying the psychiatric diagnosis of older patients, especially in uncovering previously undiagnosed dementia. Patients with severe late-life depression and other mental illnesses benefit from decreased symptoms with inpatient treatment (Ismail, 2012).
