Abstract

In order to clarify the sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of psychiatric patients with poor motivation for treatment, we examined patients who were coercively brought to hospitals. Sociodemographic and clinical data on 287 inpatients from two private psychiatric hospitals in Japan were retrospectively analyzed. All patients were in the hospitals on 1 April 1997 and had received treatment prior to this admission. Of these inpatients, 67 (23.3%) were coercively brought to hospitals. Multiple logistic regression was performed on the data of these patients to identify the factors associated with their resistance to visiting the hospital. From the results of multivariate analysis, four characteristics were associated with patients coercively brought to hospitals, namely medication compliance, receiving regular outpatient treatment or not, a history of self-aggression or aggressive behavior towards others, and living arrangements. For patients who had lived with relatives before hospitalization, the primary caregiver being a parental caregiver was associated with patients coercively brought to hospitals, although it was not statistically significant. In addition, agitation was associated with patients not coercively brought to the hospital according to multivariate analysis. The present results suggest that psychiatric patients with poor motivation are more likely to have poor medication compliance, to have not received regular outpatient treatment, to have a history of aggressive behavior and to live alone. For patients who lived with their caregivers prior to hospitalization, poorly motivated patients tended to have parental caregivers and were less likely to be agitated.
