Patients admitted to secure forensic hospitals often experience lengthy admissions. Factors associated with prolonged admissions has been well researched however, there is a lack of analysis on individual unit data. This presentation will explore discharge data for patients spending ten years or more in a Low and Medium Secure Unit in England. A retrospective case note analysis will be undertaken to present the length of stay, socio-demographic and clinical variables of this patient population. Findings will illustrate patient demographic characteristics, criminogenic and mental health history, as well as any co-morbid factor and discharge locations. Clinical implications will discuss admission length, effects on bed availability and changes to the delivery of care.
