Dilemmas of medical ethics in the Canadian Penitentiary Service. (1/507)

There is a unique hospital in Canada-and perhaps in the world-because it is built outside prison walls and it exists specifically for the psychiatric treatment of prisoners. It is on the one hand a hospital and on the other a prison. Moreover it has to provide the same quality and standard of care which is expected of a hospital associated with a university. From the time the hospital was established moral dilemmas appeared which were concerned with conflicts between the medical and custodial treatment of prisoners, and also with the attitudes of those having the status of prisoner-patient. Dr Roy describes these dilemmas and attitudes, and in particular a special conference which was convened to discuss them. Not only doctors and prison officials took part in this meeting but also general practitioners, theologians, philosophers, ex-prisoners, judges, lawyers, Members of Parliament and Senators. This must have been a unique occasion and Dr Roy's description may provide the impetus to examine these prison problems in other settings.  (+info)

Technique evaluation of foster care in chronic psychiatric disorders. (2/507)

Foster care received by 178 patients with chronic psychiatric disorders discharged from Hamilton Psychiatric Hospital in the years 1966 through 1969 was studied by technique evaluation. Residents were followed for 3 years by means of health records. The achievement of operational objectives of the program (Homes for Special Care) was compared with two types of outcome--emergency readmission to hospital and discharge to the community. Emergency readmission was associated with rural location of the foster home, inferior quality of the home operator and smaller size (i.e., fewer residents) of the home. Discharge to the community was more common among younger, female residents whose previous psychiatric hospitalization had been relatively brief. In general, prescription audit was not a fruitful way of evaluating quality of health care.  (+info)

Systematic review of the effectiveness of planned short hospital stays for mental health care. (3/507)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of planned short hospital stays versus standard care for people with serious mental illness. DESIGN: Systematic review of all randomised controlled trials comparing planned short hospital stay versus long hospital stay or standard care for people with serious mental illness. SUBJECTS: Four trials enrolled 628 patients. MAIN OUTCOMES MEASURES: Relapse; readmission; death (suicides and all causes); violent incidents (self, others, property); lost to follow up; premature discharge; delayed discharge; mental state (not improved); social functioning; patient satisfaction, quality of life, self esteem, and psychological wellbeing; family burden; imprisonment; employment status; independent living; total cost of care; and average length of hospital stay. RESULTS: Patients allocated to planned short hospital stays had no more readmissions (in four trials, odds ratio 0.93, 95% confidence interval 0.66 to 1.29 with no heterogeneity between trials), no more losses to follow up (in three trials of 404 patients, 1.09, 0.62 to 1.91 with no heterogeneity between trials), and more successful discharges on time (in three trials of 404 patients, 0.47, 0.27 to 0.85) than patients allocated long hospital stays or standard care. Some evidence showed that patients allocated planned short hospital stay were no more likely to leave hospital prematurely and had a greater chance of being employed than those allocated long hospital stay or standard care. Data on mental, social, and family outcomes could not be summated, and there were few or no data on patient satisfaction, deaths, violence, criminal behaviour, and costs. CONCLUSION: The effectiveness of care in mental hospitals is important to patients, carers, and policy makers. Despite inadequacies in the data, this review suggests that planned short hospital stays do not encourage a "revolving door" pattern of care for people with serious mental illness and may be more effective than standard care. Further pragmatic trials are needed on the most effective organisation and delivery of care in mental hospitals.  (+info)

Amoebiasis among institutionalized psychiatric patients in Taiwan. (4/507)

Although information on amoebiasis among institutionalized psychiatric patients is available, reports on the relationship between behaviour and this infection are not abundant. From July 1995 to June 1996, stool and blood samples were collected from 565 patients in three psychiatric hospitals of North Taiwan. Stool samples were examined using the direct smear and formalin-ethyl acetate sedimentation techniques as well as ProSpecT Entamoeba histolytica Microplate Assay kit. Blood samples were examined by the Amebiasis Serology Microwell ELISA kit. Among these patients, 14 (2.5%) harboured one or two species of intestinal parasites. There were 6 (1.1%) E. histolytica/E. dispar cyst passers: 5 positive in stool ELISA test and 2 with antibodies against E. histolytica. Among demographic factors, type of psychiatric disorder and disability, only a significant sexual difference in seropositivity of E. histolytica was observed. These findings indicate that the infected patients acquired the infections before they entered the hospitals.  (+info)

The management of epilepsy in a hospital for people with a learning disability. (5/507)

The study examined changes in the use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in a large hospital for people with a learning disability over a 2 year period, the use of investigations, and the presence of medication side-effects. The surveys were carried out in 1993 and 1995/6. In 1993, 27% of patients were being treated for epilepsy and in 1995/6, 30.1%. Ninety percent and 82.4% of patients, respectively, were receiving one or two AEDs. In the second survey there were fewer prescriptions for phenobarbitone (5.8% vs. 12.5%) and an increase in the use of lamotrigine (21.6% vs. 5%), gabapentin (5.8% vs. 0) and vigabatrin (3.9% vs. 2.5% in 1993). Side-effects were recorded in 6 (11.8%) patients. Seven (21.2%) patients receiving carbamazepine were found to have hyponatraemia. Of the 54 electroencephalograms (EEGs) requested, 41 (76%) were reported as abnormal. Six CT brain scans had been conducted, of which five were abnormal. People receiving antipsychotic drugs had fewer seizures than average.  (+info)

Assertive community treatment for people with severe mental illness: the effect on hospital use and costs. (6/507)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of the Program for Assertive Community Treatment (PACT) model on psychiatric inpatient service use in a population of non-emergency psychiatric patients with severe chronic mental illness, and to test for variations in this effect with program staffing levels and patient characteristics such as race and age. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Data are taken from a randomized trial of PACT in Charleston, South Carolina for 144 patients recruited from August 1989 through July 1991. STUDY DESIGN: Subjects were randomly assigned either to one of two PACT programs or to usual care at a local mental health center. Effects on hospital use were measured over an 18-month follow-up period via multiple regression analysis. DATA COLLECTION METHODS: Data were obtained from Medicaid claims, chart reviews, subject, case manager, and family interviews; searches of the computerized patient and financial databases of the South Carolina Department of Mental Health and relevant hospitals; and searches of the hard copy and computerized financial databases of the two major local hospitals providing inpatient psychiatric care. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: PACT participants were about 40 percent less likely to be hospitalized during the follow-up period. The effect was stronger for older patients. Lower PACT client/staff ratios also reduced the risk of hospitalization. No evidence of differential race effects was found. Given some hospital use, PACT did not influence the number of days of use. CONCLUSIONS: Controlling for other covariates, PACT significantly reduces hospitalizations but the size of this effect varies with patient and program characteristics. This study shows that previous results on PACT can be applied to non-emergency patients even when the control condition is an up-to-date CMHC office-based case management program.  (+info)

Do aftercare services reduce inpatient psychiatric readmissions? (7/507)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether aftercare services reduce the likelihood that children and adolescents will be readmitted to inpatient psychiatric facilities. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Analyses of data from the Fort Bragg Demonstration. Data were based on 204 sample individuals (children and adolescents), all of whom were discharged from inpatient facilities during the study period. STUDY DESIGN: These analyses use hazard modeling to examine the impact of aftercare services on the likelihood of readmission. Comparisons of individuals for whom the timing of aftercare services differ are adjusted for a wide range of individual characteristics, including client demographics, diagnosis, symptomatology, and psychosocial functioning. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: Detailed data on psychopathology, symptomatology, and psychosocial functioning were collected on individuals included in these analyses. This information was taken from structured diagnostic interviews and behavior checklists, including the Child Behavior Checklist and Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children, completed by the child and his or her caretaker. Information on the use of mental health services was taken from insurance claims and a management information system, and was used to identify the period from discharge to readmission and to describe the client's use of outpatient therapy, case management, intermediate (or stepdown) services, and residential treatment centers during this period. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS/CONCLUSIONS: Using Cox models that allow for censoring and that include the use of aftercare services as time-varying covariates, we find that aftercare services generally do not influence the likelihood of inpatient readmission. For the lower middle class families included in this study, the estimated effect of aftercare is not statistically significant and has limited practical significance. When we look at specific forms of aftercare, we find that outpatient therapy has the largest effect and that stepdown services in intermediate settings have the smallest. We also identify family and individual characteristics that influence the likelihood of readmission.  (+info)

Drug resistance patterns among hospitalized tuberculous patients in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1993-1994. (8/507)

The purpose of this study was to analyze the prevalence and risk factors for drug resistance among hospitalized patients in two tertiary care centers, an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) reference center and a sanatorium, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From 1993-1994, 389 patients were diagnosed as having tuberculosis (TB). Isolates from 265 patients were tested for in vitro susceptibility to rifampin and isoniazid. Resistance to one or more drugs was detected in 44 patients (16.6%) and was significantly more common among recurrent cases in both hospitals (p=0.03 in the AIDS center and p=0.001 in the sanatorium). Twenty seven patients (10.2%) had isolates resistant to both isoniazid and rifampin. Multi-drug resistance was associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection among patients who had never been treated for TB. In conclusion, drug-resistant TB is high in hospitalized patients in Rio de Janeiro, especially among HIV infected patients. Therefore, measures to control TB and prevent nosocomial transmission need urgently to be set up in the Brazilian hospitals.  (+info)

Inpatient psychiatric facilities across the country face $1.7 billion a year in compliance costs stemming from outdated regulations and inconsistent surveys from private and state agencies, according to a new industry report released Tuesday. The biggest driver of regulatory costs for facilities is meeting requirements to lower ligature-risk points, which are areas where a patient can try to strangle themselves. Ligature-risk point regulatory compliance costs inpatient facilities nationwide an average $880 million a year, according to the National Association for Behavioral Health, which represents the facilities. ...
To identify the pattern and determinants of psychiatric illness and the predictors of long stay among long-stay patients at the Mental Health Hospital, Taif, Saudi Arabia, we examined a total of 430 records of patients who had been admitted during the period January 1999-January 2009 and had stayed for , 9 months. More than half these patients had a history of drug addiction [‎60.7%]‎. The majority were diagnosed with schizophrenia [‎88.8%]‎ and mental retardation was reported in 17.7%. Personality disorders and epilepsy were diagnosed in 3.7% and 1.9% of the participants respectively. The mean duration of hospital stay was 6.16 [‎standard deviation 2.32; range 1-10]‎ years. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that patients diagnosed with schizophrenia accompanied by mental retardation, those with lower education levels, and those with a history of co-morbid chronic diseases stayed for more than 2 ...

Black people are three times more likely to be admitted to mental health hospitals than the rest of the population, a health watchdog has said.. The Healthcare Commission carried out a census of 34,000 mental health hospital patients in England and Wales.. It said that finding the reason for its results should be a matter of urgency.. Mental health campaigners said the findings were shocking but the government said they would be used to measure progress in ending inequality.. It has long been known that black people were more likely to end up in mental health hospitals, but the census gives the clearest indication yet of the true figures.. The census was announced after the government pledged to eradicate discrimination in NHS mental health care following a report into the death of patient David Bennett which said there was institutional racism in the NHS.. Mr Bennett died after being restrained at a Norfolk clinic in 1998.. The Healthcare Commission, in conjunction with the Mental Health ...

A proposed rule issued Friday by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that would update Medicare payment policies and rates for inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) in Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 seeks to establish a new quality reporting system authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The rule proposes to increase payment rates under the IRF Prospective Payment System (PPS) by a projected 1.5%-an estimated $120 million nationwide. The projected update reflects a rebased and revised market basket specific to IRFs, inpatient psychiatric facilities, and long-term care hospitals (the RPL market basket)-currently estimated at 2.8% for FY 2012, less a 1.3 percentage point reduction mandated by PPACA. The proposed quality reporting system is aligned with the goals of the Partnership for Patients, a new public-private partnership that aims to help improve the quality, safety, and affordability of health care. Initially, IRFs would submit data on 2 quality ...
Young people with learning disabilities are being driven to self-harm after being prevented from seeing their families during the coronavirus lockdown in breach of their human rights, a new report finds. The Joint Committee on Human Rights warned that the situation for children and young people in mental health hospitals had reached the point of severe crisis during the pandemic due to unlawful blanket bans on visits, the suspension of routine inspections and the increased use of restraint and solitary confinement. The report concluded that while young inpatients human rights were already being breached before the pandemic, the coronavirus lockdown has put them at greater risk - and called on the NHS to instruct mental health hospitals to resume visits. It highlighted cases in which young people had been driven to self-harm, including Eddie, a young man with a learning disability whose mother, Adele Green, had not been able to visit him since 14 March. When the lockdown came, it was quite ...

Schroeder Drive just off Brown Deer Road.. Rogers Behavioral Health System also operates a hospital with 80 beds in West Allis.. The new hospital initially will employ about 120 people and is projected to employ 200 people when at capacity.. In 2013, Rogers bought the building, where it had provided outpatient care, for $2.15 million. It has since spent an estimated $13 million to convert it into a psychiatric hospital.. The health system bought a nearby building at 4555 W. Schroeder Drive for its outpatient services last year.. The hospital will have a mental health unit and a drug and alcohol unit. It also will have a child and adolescent unit.. It will provide intensive, short-term ...
Smokers with mental health disorders are as motivated to quit smoking as the general population,1 and quitting has been shown to improve mental as well as physical health. Quitting also enables smokers to take lower doses of neuroleptic drugs and hence experience fewer side effects.1 Despite all this, smokers in psychiatric hospitals are less, rather than more, likely than other smokers to be offered help to quit.1 In the past two decades, during which the prevalence of smoking throughout society has fallen by a quarter, smoking rates among people with serious mental illness have barely changed.1. Prohibiting smoking indoors is clearly justified to protect non-smoking patients and staff, but is it a step too far to prevent inpatients from smoking outdoors as well, and in so doing effectively force them to quit smoking? The legal position was tested in the English courts when Rampton secure hospital went … ...

Psychiatric patients present unique challenges for emergency care, with one of the foremost problems involving the optimal way to assess whether these patients are suitable for admission to psychiatric facilities. Prior literature regarding this clearance process consists largely of expert opinion and retrospective analysis. Our study advances understanding in this area by providing prospective data to this body of literature, and specifically focuses on whether mandatory test panels change disposition after EPs have cleared a psychiatric patient for admission by history and physical exam.. This multi-center study overwhelmingly demonstrates that routine or mandatory studies do not change the disposition of psychiatric patients after EPs have cleared them for admission. Of the 191 patients evaluated in this study, only one (0.52%) patients disposition was changed by additional tests.. With only 1 exception, none of the studies performed on medically cleared patients, including complete blood ...

THIRTY kilometres south-east of Novosibirsk, in Siberia, several dozen concrete buildings have been erected outside the town of Koltsovo. The settlement is ringed with triple rows of barbed wire fences. Video cameras and motion sensors monitor any activity near the wires while soldiers from an elite Russian army unit patrol its perimeter. This is Russias State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology, or Vector, as it is usually known. Frozen in winter, when temperatures plunge below -30°C, and then scorched in summer, when the heat routinely rises above 30°C, the place is as unwelcoming as you could imagine. Given its name, location and a high-security protection, Vector would make an ideal setting for a James Bond film.

BACKGROUND: The public perception that mental disorder is strongly associated with violence drives both legal policy (eg, civil commitment) and social practice (eg, stigma) toward people with mental disorders. This study describes and characterizes the prevalence of community violence in a sample of people discharged from acute psychiatric facilities at 3 sites. At one site, a comparison group of other residents in the same neighborhoods was also assessed. METHODS: We enrolled 1136 male and female patients with mental disorders between the ages of 18 and 40 years in a study that monitored violence to others every 10 weeks during their first year after discharge from the hospital. Patient self-reports were augmented by reports from collateral informants and by police and hospital records. The comparison group consisted of 519 people living in the neighborhoods in which the patients resided after hospital discharge. They were interviewed once about violence in the past 10 weeks. RESULTS: There was no

Bromism is the syndrome which results from the long-term consumption of bromine, usually through bromide-based sedatives such as potassium bromide and lithium bromide. Bromism was once a very common disorder, being responsible for 5 to 10% of psychiatric hospital admissions, but is now uncommon since bromide was withdrawn from clinical use in many countries and was severely restricted in others. Neurological and psychiatric Neurological and psychiatric symptoms are widely varied and may include the symptoms of restlessness, irritability, ataxia, confusion, hallucinations, psychosis, weakness, stupor and, in severe cases, coma. Gastrointestinal Gastrointestinal effects include nausea and vomiting as acute adverse effects and anorexia and constipation with chronic use. Dermatological Dermatological effects include cherry angiomas, acneiform, pustular and erythematous rashes. High levels of bromide chronically impair the membrane of neurons, which progressively impairs neuronal transmission, ...

Prevalence and predictors of sub-optimal medication adherence among patients with severe mental illnesses in a tertiary psychiatric facility in Maiduguri, North-eastern Nigeria
Ive been with patients all my life, says Susan Bauer-Wu, Tussi and John Kluge Endowed Professor in Contemplative End of Life Care Professorship in Nursing. Patients are not a special class of people. Theyre us. When we become patients, we are experiencing greater pain and greater limitation. We may need to be confined. We lose sleep. Perhaps we cant eat or walk or talk in the same way. How we respond defines the difference between pain and suffering. Pain is an unpleasant signal. Suffering is how you relate to that signal. Its the meaning or story you create in your mind in response to it.. Susan Bauer-Wu has indeed been with patients all her life. Her mother was a nurse at New Yorks Central Islip State Hospital, a sprawling psychiatric facility on Long Island. Bauer-Wu sometimes even went to work with her mother and shadowed her. She went on to study nursing herself and during her sophomore year in college, when her mother was diagnosed with advanced stage breast cancer, she went home ...
Foster Home Crunch Strands Children in Psychiatric Facilities By Terri Langford April 8, 2016 Abused children in Texas are being left in psychiatric facilities longer than they were six years ago as the states child protective services system grapples with federal court scrutiny and diminishing options, according to data obtained by The Texas Tribune. Last year, 17,151 Texas children were removed from abusive homes. While the agency could not say exactly how many were placed in private and state psychiatric hospitals, data from 2009 to 2015 shows roughly 4,000 psychiatric admissions for foster care children each year. But the number of total days foster care children together spend in psychiatric facilities past their initial 8 to 10 days of treatment covered under Medicaid has risen. In June 2009, children taken together spent a total of 10 extra days in the facilities. By August 2015 that number had grown to 768 days. I can say the capacity issue is part of the problem, said Julie Moody, a ...

Between 1955 and 1994, state-run psychiatric hospitals across the country discharged most of their patients in a social experiment called deinstitutionalization. It coincided with three factors: greater availability of effective psychiatric medications, the creation of Medicaid and Medicare, and a societal movement toward treating people in their communities instead of institutions.. Despite positive intentions, deinstitutionalization helped fuel a new crisis: mass incarceration. Jhilam Biswas, MD, a forensic psychiatrist who directs the Brighams Psychiatry, Law, and Society Program, says nearly 50% of the nations prison population suffers from mental illnesses.2 In fact, jails in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago are now the three largest psychiatric institutions in the country.. Our goal is to address the serious need for high-quality psychiatric treatment in the correctional setting and educate social systems outside of medicine and healthcare on psychiatric issues, she says. We ...
In August 2001, the Israeli Ministry of Health issued its Limitation of Smoking in Public Places Order, categorically forbidding smoking in hospitals. This forced the mental health system to cope with the issue of smoking inside psychiatric hospitals. The main problem was smoking by compulsorily hospitalized psychiatric patients in closed wards. An attempt by a psychiatric hospital to implement the tobacco smoking restraint instruction by banning the sale of cigarettes inside the hospital led to the development of a black market and cases of patient exploitation in return for cigarettes. This article surveys the literature dealing with smoking among psychiatric patients, the role of smoking in patients and the moral dilemmas of taking steps to prevent smoking in psychiatric hospitals. It addresses the need for public discussion on professional caregivers dilemmas between their commitment to uphold the law and their duty to act as advocates for their patients rights and welfare. ...
Identifying people at high risk of suicide and reducing the numbers at risk are high priorities for mental health professionals in many countries. This case control study by Appleby et al permits examination of the relation between mental health service provision and suicide.. The sample of people who committed suicide and their matched controls were drawn from discharged psychiatric inpatients in Greater Manchester, UK. In a 30 month period, 708 overall confirmed or probable deaths occurred from suicide; of these, 149 suicides occurred in people who had had psychiatric hospital admissions within the previous 5 years. The authors used a model that linked risk of suicide to specific clinical predictive factors. The predictable risk of suicide, defined as risk as it would have been perceived by a clinician at the last contact before suicide, was independently assessed by review of clinical notes by 2 psychiatrists who were unaware of which patient was a case and which was a control. The authors ...

OBJECTIVE: The present study was designed to (1) estimate the frequency of benzodiazepine use in psychiatric practice, (2) investigate factors associated with use, (3) establish whether a relationship exists between benzodiazepine dose and length of use, and (4) investigate factors associated with time to discontinuation. METHODS: This study was conducted in South Verona, Italy. All individuals who were exposed to benzodiazepines during 2005 were extracted from the local Psychiatric Case Register, and the longitudinal history of benzodiazepine exposure was retrospectively described. RESULTS: In 2005, a total of 1,771 individuals were in contact with at least one of the psychiatric facilities of the South Verona catchment area. Of these, 535 were benzodiazepine users, yielding a frequency of use of 30.2% [95% confidence intervals (CI) 28.0, 32.4]. In multivariate logistic regression analysis, lower level of education, diagnosis of affective illness, longer length of illness and higher service use were

The opening article of the Journals special section (Osher & Drake,1996) which traces the history of separating mental health and addictive services, is an important contribution to the literature on dual disorders. Since we are now in the early stages of the evolution of dual diagnosis services, however, I believe it is important to provide a more complete and detailed account of the previous initiatives in this field. In response to the article by Drake, Mueser, Clark and Wallach (1996) which states Ten years ago the only treatment options available for people with co-occurring substance abuse and severe mental illness were parallel treatments in separate programs (p.49), the record requires correction. Dual diagnosis treatment interventions and integrated programs that truly adapted to the needs of severely mentally ill chemical abusers (MICA) began in 1984 (Gigliotti,1986, Sciacca 1987a,1987b) in a New York State outpatient psychiatric facility. In 1985 these integrated treatment ...

A blistering review of Virginia's mental facilities, which was belatedly released last week by state officials, should tug at the conscience of every Virginia taxpayer. In a situation that has gone on for centuries, but which seems to have been exacerbated this decade, Virginia has relegated those citizens least able to fend for themselves to perpetual substandard care. From day one - Virginia is after all the home of the oldest state mental hospital in the country - mental health programs have been underfunded.

Having a primary care service for an acute psychiatric unit appears to help meet the numerous acute and long-standing physical health needs of patients. Previous work by Fisher & Roberts (1998) has highlighted the important role for a primary care doctor among long-stay patients. Our study suggests that patients in acute psychiatric wards can also benefit from primary care expertise. It also suggests that it is feasible to establish a primary care service, and that such a service usefully supplements the physical health care already provided and is welcomed by patients. Potential problems considered when the service was established did not really materialise. Some duplication of work occurred initially when patients were referred to specialist on-call services as well as to the primary care service, but feedback to staff minimised such events. An initial concern of staff was that the service would introduce an extra layer of complexity in the care of patients. In practice, this did not appear to ...

This paper summarises longitudinal data based on repeat assessments of the behavioural functioning of 90 long-stay psychiatric patients. Data were gathered over a period of 4-5 years that spanned a hospital closure and the resettlement of patients in various alternative settings. Time-series analyses of individual data sets showed that resettlement led to no significant behavioural change in the majority of patients. However, some significant behavioural improvements were evidenced for approximately 20% of the group, while behavioural deterioration occurred in approximately 12%. Supplementary findings showed that following resettlement the quality of care provided significantly improved in many respects. However, access to social, recreational or vocational activities was reduced. In addition, the level of physical health symptomatology was shown to increase for this group of patients ...
The major findings of this study were that patients for whom court-ordered medication was sought (MOO group), and, with few exceptions, obtained, were more likely to be transferred to state hospitals for long-term inpatient care and less likely to link to the next level of care after discharge, compared with similar patients who accepted treatment. These findings were essentially the same when MOO group patients were compared with patients who initially refused but ultimately accepted medication.. The relatively high rate of state hospital transfers in the MOO group strongly suggests that persistent medication refusal in a hospital setting may be a risk factor for treatment refractory status. Patients are transferred to a state hospital when discharge to the community is considered unsafe and they have not responded to many months of aggressive inpatient treatment, typically four to six months in our setting. It is interesting to speculate that there may have been an interaction between ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Length of psychiatric hospitalization and prediction of antipsychotic response. AU - Zemian, Frank P.. AU - Thienhaus, Ole J.. AU - Garver, David L.. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - 1. 1. Clinical variables determining length of psychiatric hospitalization for psychotic inpatients were explored. Forty psychotic inpatients received a 14 day fixed dose neuroleptic trial. 2. 2. Neuroleptic responders ( 25 40) were discharged 15 ± 2 days after initiation of phannacotherapy. For neuroleptic non-responders ( 15 40) antipsychotic medication was then altered as clinically indicated. Patients requiring one change in medication (N = 8) were discharged after 27 ± 5 days; those requiring two medication adjustments (N = 4) were discharged after 33 ± 3 days and those requiring three alterations in phannacotherapy (N = 3) were discharged after 42 ± 12 days. 3. 3. Statistical analysis of clinical and diagnostic variables indicated that 84% of the variation in length of hospitalization was ...
Introduction: Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) is one of the most common syndromes that include a set of serious cardiovascular risk factors. MetS is highly prevalent in the high risk population and contributes to reduced lifespan. The primary goal of the study is to assess the prevalence of MetS and its relation to the treatment modalities and the psychiatric diagnosis. Methods: A cross-sectional study for the hospitalized patients in the Mental Health hospital in Taif city, Saudi Arabia that was conducted between Dec 2013 - Nov 2015. We included adult patients who were admitted to the inpatient service. We diagnosed MetS according to the new International Diabetes Federation (IDF) definition. Results: A total of 313 patients with mean age 48.4+10.8 years old, the majority were male and single, 68.3% have high school degree or less, mean BMI in the overweight range, and mean waist circumference 96.5+14.0 cm. Compared to these without MetS, those with MetS more likely to have BMI and waist ...

INTRODUCTION: The consequences of violent and antisocial behaviors among psychiatric hospital inpatients are serious and may affect the treatment of the aggressor. Lack of knowledge concerning the incidence of this phenomenon and its characteristics helps perpetuate the current scenario. OBJECTIVES: To present an updated literature review on the topic, to estimate the incidence of violent and antisocial behaviors in a mental hospital population, and to describe the implementation of a systematic method to record this phenomenon. METHOD: A cohort was selected among the psychiatric inpatients at Maurício Cardoso Forensic Psychiatry Institute (Instituto Psiquiátrico Forense Maurício ...
From admission ward through to locked intensive care to rehabilitation ward, 24-hour nursed care and hostel, all constituent parts of a mental health hospital service systematically stratify patients according to a hierarchy of risk, so that patients are allocated to places with high, medium or low levels of relational, procedural and environmental security. This long-standing structural risk management at the systems level may have been lost in modern sectorised community mental health teams and small generic in-patient units. If general psychiatrists daily manage mixed populations of patients, many of whom are at a risk of committing homicide of 1/10 000 per year as Szmuckler suggests, (or 200/10 000 risk of violence) they may be unaware that a few of their patients are at a risk of 1/100 for homicide or 1/10 for violence. Even with little regard for risk management, most psychiatrists responsible for catchment populations of 30 000 to 50 000 (120 to 200 with severe mental illness) would ...
