Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this study was to attempt an appraisal of the contribution of Social Service activity toward trial visit movement over a three year period at the V.A. Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Augusta, Georgia. Preliminary exploration of such movement during the selected period had revealed an increase in the number of trial visits during the first six months of each year from 91 in 1954 to 202 in 1957. A corresponding increase was noted in the ratio of successful discharges from trial visit to rehospitalizations for the same period: from 37 discharged to 50 returned in 1954 to 142 discharged and 109 returned in 1957. The average daily number of patients on trial visit also increased from 80 to 225"--Introduction.
