The mental hospital; a study of institutional participation in psychiatric illness and treatment by Alfred H Stanton( Book )

29 editions published between 1954 and 2009 in English and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is both disturbing and encouraging: disturbing because it highlights so many of the imperfections of current hospital practices, and encouraging because it indicates how change and improvement may be brought about. It is a serious inquiry into the social setting in which hospital administration occurs, and it concerns itself primarily with the frequently unrecognized forces which influence patient and staff behavior. The book is, and necessarily must be, a composite of observations and opinions, data and inference. It is, therefore, a rather accurate mirror of the stresses and strains encountered in a hospital when existing practice is under scrutiny and when change is proposed. The rigorous examination of clinical administrative procedure at Chestnut Lodge marks a significant stage in the development of our hospital. The study here reported was made during the stage of development at Chestnut Lodge when there was still a separate administrator for each floor and should be viewed as reflecting the state of affairs during that period. It was at this point that Drs. Stanton and Schwartz undertook to examine our procedures and to identify what actually took place. This planned examination, of course, brought into focus the existence of many stereotypes which had grown up about the way the hospital worked and which had at times been uncritically accepted. It was in part due to findings made in the present study that our step to a single administrator for each service was made. As differences of opinion between therapists, administrators, and nurses were investigated, it became clear that many times administrative, therapeutic or nursing procedures reflected personal needs of those involved rather than reality needs of the patients. Although their conclusions have been derived from work on a small ward of a small hospital, Drs. Stanton and Schwartz have developed principles which are applicable in large settings and in different types of hospital organizations. Such applications are possible if there are present both a desire to determine the actual situation in a given hospital and a willingness to accept change without fear.

Living Fully Until Death( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people today die as a result of a chronic disease. Many will know the cause of their death for some time prior to dying, causing a great deal of stress and turmoil for both themselves and their families. This program from The Doctor Is In offers the inspirational tales of three people who find new meaning in life and the courage to deal with the challenge of living fully after learning they have a terminal illness. Featured in the program are the late Morrie Schwartz, a Brandeis University professor profiled in the best-seller Tuesdays with Morrie, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS); Shirley Waring, a mother of four adult children, who has leukemia; and William Meyer, who has lung cancer. Each has struggled in his or her own unique way to try to find personal control, to plan for the unknown, and to find a place for spirituality. As Morrie Schwartz notes, "Learning to die is also learning how to live
