Abstract

The call for ‘rights for residents’ has become increasingly frequent. Some groups have developed charters: a charter of rights for young people in care (BASW, 1977), a charter of rights for children in institutions (Taylor et al., 1979), a bill of rights for patients in mental illness hospitals (Gostin, 1975). The terminology is legalistic while the subject matter, fundamentally the freedom and choice of residents, is concerned with moral states.
