Locked ward patients 25 years on

  • Martin Feakins (a1)
Abstract
Aims and method

A retrospective case note study of 43 patients who were residents of a locked ward in 1970, augmented by a cross-section of the ward's current residents was undertaken.

Results

The study established a profile of the 43 patients in 1970 and determined their outcomes. A brief comparison of the use of medication then and now was also undertaken.

Clinical implications

This view of the past aimed to provide a prospective on why and how the field has changed, and to facilitate planning for the future.
