Description:
The development of psychiatric services in Ireland has mirrored the developments taking place internationally. There has been a move from institutional to community care and a marked decline in hospitalised morbidity. This decline has resulted primarily from the reduction in numbers of long-stay patients. At the same time, however, admissions t o mental hospitals have risen substantially, placing- considerable pressure on acute psychiatric beds. A phenomenon has developed of rapid turnover, with a cycle of readmission, short length of stay and often-premature discharge, leading to further readmissions. As a result, services for patients can be unduly determined by availability of bed resources.
