One Miami psychiatrist, for example, wrote 8,900 prescriptions in 2010 for powerful antipsychotics to patients older than 65, including many with dementia

Imagine my surprise when I discovered that writing scripts is all most psychiatrists do now. No more analysis; just prescribe psychotropic drugs.

Mine seem to leave the analysis to the Phd’s —and partner with them. Some I’ve noticed have Psychologists and Social Workers in their offices.

I think the comprehensive approach is most appropriate.

The Miami Psychiatrist mentioned is probably the one and only that travels from nursing home to nursing home.

When my father was temporarily in one for rehab from a stroke —there was one Geriatric Psychaitrist that travelled the entire county. In Chicagoland, one county has many, many such facilities. When I talked with her I thought she did a good job eavluating him for the short time she had with him.

WE have a shortage of mental health professionals.

That’s a cheap way out.
