Objective. To explore the dynamics of admission of patients for repeated compulsory treatment to a medical setting providing general and specialized psychiatric care. Material and methods. The dynamics of admission of patients for repeated compulsory treatment in the «Moscow Psychiatric clinical hospital No5» for the period 1991—2019 was analyzed based on medical records of two groups of patients: the main group (n=1325) and the comparison group (n=15 100). Results and conclusion. Over the past 5 years, there is a decrease in repeated admissions of patients to compulsory treatment who have committed a new socially dangerous act. This positive dynamic is due to compliance with the principles of continuity and phasing between inpatient and outpatient units of compulsory treatment. The transition of patients from inpatient compulsory treatment to compulsory treatment in outpatient settings is an effective measure to prevent patients from committing repeated socially dangerous acts. © 2020, Media Sphera Publishing Group.
