When a client is admitted to a psychiatric ward they are very ill and through no fault of their own, they may halt the progress of other clients who are in recovery stage.
What I suggest is that there are recovery wards as well as acute wards. This would mean when an acute patient is deemed well enough they are transferred to a recovery unit with in the same hospital. This would also be good for clients with depression etc
