Use of Mental Health Services by Nursing Home Residents After Hurricanes

Brown, L. M., K. Hyer, et al. (2010). Use of Mental Health Services by Nursing Home Residents After Hurricanes. Psychiatric Services. 61(1): 74-7.

The authors of this report discuss the findings of their study on the evaluation of pre- and post-hurricane mental health service use in Florida nursing homes. Results indicated that although most nursing homes provided some type of mental health service during normal operations, disaster-related mental health services were not routinely provided to residents. The authors also found that receiving facilities were more likely than evacuating facilities to provide treatment to evacuated residents.
