Abstract [en]

Patients and staff in a forensic psychiatric setting were requested to name three distinguishing characteristics of the ward atmosphere. The manifest content analysis of the responses revealed the following categories: interpersonal relations and pre-conditions for interpersonal relations, organization, staff, treatment, daily activities, physical environment and feeling good and secure. The patients appeared to have a peripheral role as contributors to the ward atmosphere in the views of the respondents. The easily administered single question format provided valuable information about that intangible element of psychiatric settings – the ward atmosphere.
