Table 2 Comparing the likelihood of prescribing restraint and the estimated hospitalization length.

From: Attitude of young psychiatrists toward coercive measures in psychiatry: a case vignette study in Japan

Likelihood of Restraint 9 point scale
(9 = strongly agree)
 
Overall (n = 183) 5.14 ± 2.5  
   Designated mental health physician (n = 60) 4.98 ± 2.5 p = 0.371
   Non-designated physician (n = 58) 5.40 ± 2.4  
   University hospital (n = 103) 5.02 ± 2.3  
   General hospital (n = 36) 6.25 ± 2.5 p = 0.032
   Psychiatric hospital (n = 34) 4.15 ± 2.6 p = 0.0013
Estimated length of hospitalization weeks  
   Agreed with restraint (score 7-9, n = 62) 12.22 ± 4.0 p = 0.049
   Disagreed with restraint (score 1-3, n = 55) 14.22 ± 7.4  
  1. Survey results are expressed with a mean ± SD. p values were calculated using Student's t-test between the two subgroups. Significant differences were found between those psychiatrists practicing in general hospitals and the two other types of hospitals. No significant variation was found between psychiatrists in university and psychiatric hospitals.
  2. Significance of difference between:
  3. 1 Designated mental health physician and Non-designated physician
  4. 2 University hospital and general hospital
  5. 3 General hospital and psychiatric hospital
