Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. Inpatient treatment may be warranted in cases of schizophrenia with suicidal or homicidal intent or violent/aggressive behaviour or poor nutrition and hygiene. At times admission is required for proper assessment. Admission based on above criteria is at the discretion of the treating psychiatrist at the setting you mentioned. Family preferences are also generally taken into account for admission.
