Abstract

After reviewing emergency services in general hospitals, the authors conclude that only a few of them have innovative, community-oriented emergency programs; most seem to follow traditional practices. The authors suggest that we recognize that large segments of the population will always turn to the general hospital for emergency care: the potential for early psychiatric casefinding and preventive intervention with this group is substantial.
