  1. For those given each rating of each item (0 = community, 1 = open ward, 2 = PICU, 3 or 4 forensic medium or high secure), the number and percentage placed correctly or at a higher (safer) level of therapeutic security. Note that for those rated '0', any placement in the community or at a higher level is appropriate.
