Abstract
  • The ways in which hospitals administer patients' money and provide residents with access to their income play a large part in controlling the amount of money a resident can use. Because so little attention has been paid to the financial position of residents in long-stay hospitals it is not know what constraints are placed on their lives, their sense of themselves and their futures. These are all issues which need urgent examination if serious attempts are to be made to improve the quality of life of hospital residents and if active policies of rehabilitation and integration with the community are to be pursued.
