Abstract

Individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD) often struggle with chronic suicidal thoughts and behaviors and have frequent acute psychiatric admissions. Prevention of serial admissions and disruptions in long-term treatment strategies is needed. This study explored predictors of how frequently and how quickly patients diagnosed with BPD are readmitted after an index psychiatric admission. The authors identified self-harming behavior as a predictor of readmission frequency, whereas depression and hallucinations and delusions predicted time elapsed between the index admission and the first readmission. The authors recommend that predictors of readmissions should be carefully monitored and treated following index admission.
