    Default a question for the nurses out there

    especially on psych wards or similar where you have freedom of movement around the ward over the usually week+stay.

    If you are moved to a ward you wouldn't usually be placed in (aged) due to a bed shuffle, is there any chance of being moved back to the ward you came from or are you stuck

    Absolutely...if you have been moved due to bed shortage /logistics then you can certainly request to be transferred back to a more appropriate adult ward if a bed becomes available. I imagine it's in the hospitals best interests for pts to be in the correct place for better access to appropriate services/therapy and socialisation...Have you asked to be moved back?

    I think especially if you should be on an open ward and the aged ward is locked, making it more constricting for you, that's an issue...but really, you are being accommodated somewhere not really appropriate. I would just speak with your nurse/psych/Dr in the morning and request, if at all possible, to be moved back to the adult ward as you would feel more comfortable there...
    It's a shame MH beds are in such short supply in the first place 😡

    Thanks. The ward I'm on is actually less secure than where I should be as an involuntary patient. Saw my psychiatrist who is not happy at all that I was shunTed and we are back at stage 1 with me refusing all food/drink and highly
    Suicidal (not helped by having my dignity stripped away with them removing my
    bra in case I tried to hurt myself with it). At least my psych is the most senior here and has guaranteed I will be back to other ward following ect tomorrow with strict instructions not to move me again
