This comment is about the article, "Safety of women in mixed-sex and single-sex medium secure units: staff and patient perceptions" by Mezey et al (2005). Our position is not that gender adequately differentiates between men's and women's needs but that in the absence of more sophisticated frameworks, their needs are such that, for the foreseeable future, service planning must be based on the assumption that women forensic patients are sufficiently different from their male counterparts that their needs should be provided for separately.
