Abstract: Based on data gathered from patients, psychiatrists, and social workers at the Hawaii State Hospital, it was determined that the majority of patients had been in the hospital for more than one year, were committed for forensic reasons, and did not need continued hospitalization. An inter-agency systems approach is needed to address the issue of length of patient stay.
