SHORTAGES OF MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Part III--Facilities

A. Federal and State Correctional Institutions

1. Criteria.

    Medium to maximum security Federal and State correctional 
institutions and youth detention facilities will be designated as 
having a shortage of psychiatric manpower if both of the following 
criteria are met:
    (a) The institution has more than 250 inmates, and
    (b) The ratio of the number of internees per year to the number 
of FTE psychiatrists serving the institution is at least 1,000:1.
    Here the number of internees is defined as follows:
    (i) If the number of new inmates per year and the average 
length-of-stay are not specified, or if the information provided 
does not indicate that intake psychiatric examinations are routinely 
performed upon entry, then--
    Number of internees=average number of inmates
    (ii) If the average length-of-stay is specified as one year or 
more, and the intake psychiatric examinations are routinely 
performed upon entry, then--
    Number internees=average number of inmates+number of new inmates 
per year
    (iii) If the average length-of-stay is specified as less than 
one year, and intake psychiatric examinations are routinely 
performed upon entry, then--
    Number of internees=average number of inmates+\1/
3\x[1+(2xALOS)]xnumber of new inmates per year
    where ALOS=average length-of-stay (in fraction of year) (The 
number of FTE psychiatrists is computed as in Part I, Section B, 
paragraph 3 above.)

2. Determination of Degree of Shortage.

    Designated correctional institutions will be assigned to degree-
of-shortage groups, based on the number of inmates and/or the ration 
(R) of internees to FTE psychiatrists, as follows:
    Group 1--Institutions with 500 or more inmates and no 
psychiatrist.
    Group 2--Other institutions with no psychiatrists and 
institutions with R greater than (or equal to) 3,000:1.
    Group 3--Institutions with R greater than (or equal to) 2,000:1
