Objective Contribution to the analysis of patient assault routine data from psychiatric wards over a period of 10 years. Methods A recently published time series of violent incidents reported an increase over 8 years. The entire series including subsequent 1.5 years is re-analyzed regarding influencing factors and trend lines. Results The number of incidents fluctuates at a low level. A non-linear trend appears appropriate. Conclusions Assessment of routine data is important, should be standardized and consider influences and limitations.
