Psychiatric hospital

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Psychiatric hospitals, also known as mental hospitals and psychiatric wards ("psych" wards) when they are a sub-unit of a regular hospital, are hospitals or wards specializing in the treatment of serious mental disorders, such as clinical depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. Psychiatric hospitals vary widely in their size and grading. Some hospitals may specialize only in short-term or outpatient therapy for low-risk patients. Others may specialize in the temporary or permanent care of residents who, as a result of a psychological disorder, require routine assistance, treatment, or a specialized and controlled environment. Patients are often admitted on a voluntary basis, but people whom psychiatrists believe may pose a significant danger to themselves or others may be subject to involuntary commitment.[1]

Modern psychiatric hospitals evolved from, and eventually replaced the older lunatic asylums. The treatment of inmates in early lunatic asylums was sometimes brutal and focused on containment and restraint.[2][3] With successive waves of reform, and the introduction of effective evidence-based treatments, modern psychiatric hospitals provide a primary emphasis on treatment, and attempt where possible to help patients control their own lives in the outside world, with the use of a combination of psychiatric drugs and psychotherapy.

A crisis stabilization unit is in effect an emergency room for psychiatry, frequently dealing with suicidal, violent, or otherwise critical individuals. Open units are psychiatric units that are not as secure as crisis stabilization units. Another type of psychiatric hospital is medium term, which provides care lasting several weeks. In the United Kingdom, both crisis admissions and medium term care is usually provided on acute admissions wards. Juvenile or adolescent wards are sections of psychiatric hospitals or psychiatric wards set aside for children and/or adolescents with mental illness. Long-term care facilities have the goal of treatment and rehabilitation back into society within a short time-frame (two or three years). Another institution for the mentally ill is a community-based halfway house.

i heard good things about this game and even this series long before i actually got it, but i also heard it used games for windows live and really didn’t want to buy it and then not be able to play it. i picked it up shortly after they patched out gfwl and it’s about what i expected. it looks great, feels very batman, and has you doing some very cool stuff like ziplining, grappling, and gliding.. it also has sections i didn’t enjoy such as the scarecrow sequences and looking for the clue in a room to set up to track someone. a little shorter than i expected but i was also ready to move on to arkham city so wasn’t disappointed. great for batman fans, but skip if you aren't into batman or at least cool gadgets.

A must buy. A third person game with a good story, punching and kicking with great graphics and sound. You can upgrade combat moves which helps, but the game isn't much difficult and it saves often.

Ventilation duct cover removal simulator 2010, Game of the Year Edition

10/10 Would forcibly rip down ventilation duct covers again.

Seriously, you remove A LOT of ventilation duct covers. I feel bad for the HVAC guy who has to get called in after everything is clear over in Arkham Asylum.

Still, an amazing experience that must be...experienced. Highly recommended.

All around Arkham Island,
Batman chased the baddies.
Batman thought ’twas to be a good guy,
Pop! goes the baddies.

Batman IS a good guy and a great superhero.

10/10 would pop baddies heads like balloons.

Quite possibly my favorite game of all time. It takes Prince of Persia style jumping puzzles and fight scenes, the collecting feature of Metroid Prime, and adds Batman and a good chunk of his rogue gallery. Sooooo much funnnnnnn!

This is the original Batman game that made people like me believe that superhero games would still be a real good option to play.

The story is very well written, with proper stress on different aspects of Batman's life.
The game play is fluid, even after 3 years of release it still impresses me and a lot of modern games need to learn from this.

If you are a batman fan then this trilogy of Batman games is wort every penny.

After almost 20 hours of gameplay and achieving a 100% completion rate I can reccommend this game to any Batman fan, and even if you aren't a huge Batman fan buy this game because the presentation and atmosphere and gameplay will give you a reason to become one. One of my all time favorites, and I'm sure it'll become one of yours too.

Ooooohhhhh mmmmyyyyyyy ggggoooooooddddd!!! This game is the reason why there's no half life 3, it's story is so deep that you won't know what's coming next or how this whole storyline started. It's combat system is the best in video game history that it's been replicated many times (and their all terrible). This game is a 10/10 in most gamers, comic book lovers and even critics books. It is definitely recommended

First of all the soundtrack is great and one of the best batman soundtracks ever created!The bosses are unique and mob flashing beautiful,the enemies arechallenging and not forgettable!It verticles u a protection of being satisfied when u complete an area!

Cons
dont even give me this not really a con but the challenging mode can be a stupid entry forsaken!
it doesnt have many batman villians,so it may turn u off in some desired selection!

Pros
A LUBE STRIP of action
the old school batman is back and the joker styles!
Reservoir protector gameplay
A wall of death challenges!
It has tradition
an editor of broken ankles fun pulling off the combo moves list!
Crashing Wild is a blast to play!
Flying down in a cape is always typically fun!
a journalist of figuring out riddles is even spontaneously fun

I give this game a 10/10 a recommednation to a batman fan or a tomb raider junky like myself love the burrito master

Fun action game, especially if you like Batman. The combat gets a little repetitive at times, and you can tell it's a port from console (the controls are slightly clunky), but neither of these get in the way of play. The story is good, and it was fun to play.

why isn't Daredevil called Batman, and Batman called Daredevil? I mean, seriously?

Daredevil uses his hearing and echolocation, like a bat.

Batman dresses around doing suicidal stunts in his underwear, like a daredevil...

no further questions, your honor.
