In May we blogged about the start of this exciting project, which aims to create a database of all patients whose names appear in the REH casebooks. Just 6 weeks into the project and our two volunteers, Arturo and Sandy, who work for 1.5 days a week between them, have already added 449 entries!
Some facts so far…
Youngest patient age on admission: 16
Oldest patient age on admission: 75
Most common diagnoses: mania and melancholia
Some unusual occupations: gold leaf layer; bell hanger; iron moulder; map colourer
Some common occupations: housewife; labourer; soldier; sailor
