Patients with severe symptoms that significantly impair their daily functioning or pose a threat to their well-being may be considered for psychiatric hospitalization.

*Failed Outpatient Treatment*

Individuals who have not responded adequately to outpatient psychiatric treatment or therapy may be candidates for inpatient care.

If there are concerns about the patient's safety in their current environment, such as living alone without adequate support, hospitalization may be recommended.

*Medical Stability*

Patients should be medically stable enough to participate in and benefit from psychiatric treatment.

In some cases, the patient or their legal guardian must provide informed consent for hospitalization and treatment.

*Legal Criteria*

Legal criteria, such as being a danger to oneself or others, may influence the eligibility for involuntary psychiatric hospitalization.
