This chapter considers the difficulties that administrators, physicians, nurses, psychiatrists, and other emergency department (ED) staff experience in the treatment of people with psychiatric disabilities. These include accreditation and evaluation systems that create incentives that undermine appropriate psychiatric evaluation and treatment; the lack of standards in emergency room practice; financing emergency room care; and lack of continuity between emergency rooms and community care.
