Depression in physically ill patients is often encountered in consultation-liaison psychiatry. This investigation examined the relationship between length of stay (LOS) and depression comorbidity. Physically-ill patients with depression stayed significantly longer that those without. This study suggested that the early detection and antidepressant treatment is important for physically ill patients with depression that could lead to the shortening of LOS.
