Description:
The National Psychiatric In-patient Reporting System (PIRS) was established in 1963 to provide information on the activities of the inpatient psychiatric service. Annual reports detailing the activities of Irish psychiatric hospitals and units have been since 1965, initially under the auspices of the Medico-Social Research Board and, since 1986, by its successor, the Health Research Board. This report provides cross-sectional data on admissions to and discharges from psychiatric inpatient facilities across the country. The data are presented in four ways; for the country as a whole, by health board area, by individual hospital and by hospital type. A range of classificatory variables is used in presenting the data i.e. gender, age, marital status, socio-economic group, legal status, diagnosis and length of stay. Selected findings and trends are commented on. A further section reviewing changes over three decades helps to place the findings from this year in a broader context. This report represents one facet of the work carried out by the Mental Health Section of the HRB. As part of its epidemiological work in the mental health area, dle Health Research Board maintains a psychiatric case register which covers the counties of Roscommon and Westmeath, and in association with St. Loman's Hospital Dublin, another based in the West Dublin area. In addition the Health Research Board carries out decennial censuses of the psychiatric inpatient population.
