After adjusting for individual characteristics in a multinomial logistic regression model (Table 3), children’s units were 44% more likely to transfer adolescent patients to a P/R/C facility than were adult hospitals (odds ratio [OR], 1.44; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.07-1.94). No statistically significant differences regarding transfer to a skilled nursing or intermediate care facility or to a short-term acute care hospital were evident across hospital types. Compared with patients cared for in the Northeast, patients elsewhere were significantly less likely to be transferred to a P/R/C facility than discharged to home (South: OR, 0.79; 95% CI, 0.65-0.97; Midwest: OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.49-0.80; West: OR, 0.29; 95% CI, 0.22-0.38), whereas patients in the West were significantly more likely to be transferred to a skilled nursing or intermediate care facility (OR, 19.11; 95% CI, 11.67-31.30). Transfer to a P/R/C facility was more likely than discharge to home for adolescents with bipolar disorders (OR, 1.64; 95% CI, 1.26-2.14) or depression (OR, 1.16; 95% CI, 1.02-1.32), while those with personality disorders (OR, 0.73; 95% CI, 0.58-0.92), disruptive disorders (OR, 0.66; 95% CI, 0.56-0.78), and stress disorders (OR, 0.45; 95% CI, 0.37-0.56) were less likely to be transferred to these facilities. Patients who were admitted after self-cutting were 65% less likely to be transferred to a P/R/C facility than were adolescents who attempted suicide by ingestion or self-poisoning (OR, 0.35; 95% CI, 0.27-0.44). Transfer to a P/R/C facility was also less likely for female patients (OR, 0.73; 95% CI, 0.64-0.83), black (OR, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.60-0.96) or Hispanic (OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.49-0.80) patients, and patients with private insurance (OR, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.66-0.88). Diagnosis, method of suicide attempt, and payer each appear to exert similar patterns of influence on the likelihood of transfer to a skilled nursing or intermediate care facility as opposed to discharge to home.
