Abstract

This survey of 148 (out of 623) patientindustry jobs and the patients' opinions about working leaves us with these impressions: 1. Work is one of the more favored activities among hospital patients; 2. Regular work raises the self-esteem of numerous patients; 3. A great many chronic patients retain the conviction that work is inherently worthwhile; 4. Work often relieves boredom or ameliorates distressing psychotic symptoms in these patients.
