Abstract

Mood, cognition, behavior, and function are each assessed at least weekly on an inpatient geropsychiatry unit. The performance in each of these four spheres near discharge is examined in relationship to initial performances. Mood is relatively independent of the other spheres with the final mood assessment correlating only with mood near the time of admission. Final cognitive, behavioral, and functional performances are related to initial performances in these three spheres but are not significantly correlated with the initial performance in the mood sphere.
