Review:

Psychiatric hospitals are no longer insane asylums; they are immersed in the outside world rather than being shielded from it. Smaller, more well staffed, less likely to be publicly managed, with shorter stays, more frequent readmissions, discharge planning that begins with admission, new forms of treatment, and above all a constant awareness of economics-cost, reimbursement, managed care and budgets-they have experienced extraordinary changes in the past few decades. Sharfstein, Dickerson and Oldham provide a modern comprehensive textbook that describes and analyzes these changes, discussing how hospitals care for patients, how they relate to the outside world, and how some of our finest institutions have adapted to these challenges. A must read for anyone who works in these institutions or knows those who do. --Robert Michels, M.D., Walsh McDermott University Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry, Cornell University

The Textbook of Hospital Psychiatry composed by Drs. Sharfstein, Dickerson, and Oldham is a superb collation of some of the very best thinking on psychiatric care in hospital settings. The editors have secured the participation of the leaders in the field. The topics are covered extensively, and so this will represent a wonderful sourcebook as well as excellent reading for all interested in the broad and complex field of hospital psychiatry. --Herbert Pardes, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, New York-Presbyterian Hospital; Professor of Psychiatry, Columbia/Cornell Universities, New York, New York

Sharfstein, Dickerson, and Oldham have edited a comprehensive, well organized, and extensively referenced textbook that will sever both as enjoyable reading and a great reference source for anyone interested in the increasingly complex and fast-paced setting of inpatient psychiatry. --John D McIntyre, MD, The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
