How to Discharge Young Schizophrenians From Mental Hospital in a Non-Traditional Method
Abstract:
How to Discharge Young Schizophrenians From Mental Hospital in a Non-Traditional Method
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2005
Author:Jensen, Bendt
P.I. Institution Name:Aalborg Psychiatric Hospital
Title:Nurse
The project deals with an untraditional way of discharging patients suffering form long-term schizophrenia. Form this project you will learn how to keep persons suffering from schizophrenia away from hospitalisation ? permanently or at least for a long time. We have correlated the patients with the staff-member for one month. Thereafter, this staff-member gains the title of project manager for the month just after the discharge. This personal contact substitutes documents and written instructions. During the years of 2002-2003 the project manager has observed and supported the 14 patients with such success that only 2 of them (1 only for a short time) have been rehospitalized. Actually, this sort of discharge will be implemented as the standard procedure at our hospital. What can be concluded is: - The patients show a good compliance - They do not need an increase in medication during their discharge - They realise the importance of not changing modern medication One of our presumptions was that the discharges would become more equal in their performances under these circumstances. However, they have turned out to be just as diverse as usual. We can maintain the statement that patient suffering from schizophrenia wants - a recognizable person who has overview of needs - an identified person to turn to who will take interest. The project manager has followed the patients from the mental hospital to halfway houses, to protected homes, and to flats. This has been done with or without the support of the patient's family. Some patients have expressed their satisfaction of being able to move without family involvement.
