I have a call in to the Advisory Board and have found a few articles in PubMed that talk around the issue, but can't find an answer to these questions:

How many patients can a psychiatrist see in an 8 hour day?
What is a reasonable number of patients to see in an 8 hour day in a consultation service?
What is recommended provider coverage (ARNP or psychiatrist) for inpatient, outpatient and consultation liaison psychiatric services?

Where would you look?
Thanks in advance!
