Description:
This activity report includes data reported to the Mental Health Commission on the administration of ECT during 2010. Data are presented based on returns from 67 approved centres. Twenty-three approved centres (34.3%) indicated that ECT was administered to their residents in the approved centre. Seven approved centres (10.4%) indicated that they referred residents to other approved centres for the administration of ECT. A total of 347 programmes of ECT were reported to the Commission in 2010 which is equivalent to a rate of 8.2 programmes per 100,000 total population. There has therefore been a decrease of 26 compared to the number of ECT programmes administered in 2009. In 2010, the majority of residents were administered one programme of ECT. The mean number of treatments per programme of ECT was 6.8 and the median number of treatments was seven. As reported in 2008 and 2009, St Patrick’s Hospital recorded the highest number of programmes of ECT (117/347) of all approved centres. It accounts for slightly more than a third (33.7%) of all ECT programmes reported to the Commission. It is followed by the Department of Psychiatry at Waterford Regional Hospital (12.1%) and St Brigid’s Hospital in Ballinasloe (6.6%).
