Outcomes in hospital hostels

  • Geoff Shepherd (a1), Charles King (a2) and David Fowler (a2)
Abstract

Activity and outcome data for two ‘ward-in-a-house’ projects for new long-stay in-patients are described. The results confirm that up to a third may be successfully resettled providing that good quality sheltered housing is available. However, a similar proportion appear to find such environments too demanding and may be transferred after an acute exacerbation of symptoms or a violent incident. The remainder need high quality, ongoing care.
