Objective: We try to study levels and their developement in teenagers who hospitalized in two hospital units: day care (DH) and 24 hours hospital (GH). It is an observation and longitudinal desing in the following units: Sant Joan de Déu Hospital from Barcelona, Orienta Outpatient Unit of Gavá, San Joan de Déu Outpatient Unit of Barcelona and Mollet. Results: There are diferences between anxiety levels of both hospitalary units (GH x̄ = 33,77; DH: x̄ = 23,94). A 68,4% of patients have importants levels of anxiety during hospitalization, and a 40,8% of them show the higher levels. Discussion: We have found remarkable diferences and temporal stability among the levels of anxiety patients in wards. This levels are higher in psychiatric hospital than day hospital, but the diferences aren't significantly in temporal evolution. Residence and satisfaction with family relationship are related to this anxiety.
