Rowan could leave locked ward Aug. 12

The Western State Hospital Risk Review Board’s report on Bruce Rowan paints a positive picture of him, as does a treatment plan that Rowan must abide by if he gains his conditional release.

“From actuarial (risk factor) perspective, patient is very low risk,” says one entry.

“In that regard, he has met the release criteria per his treatment plan.

“While patient tends to be less than expressive, there is no evidence that he has been deceitful around his symptoms or other issues for that matter.

“There is no evidence of antisocial or psychopathic personality.

“His depression is well controlled. He shows good understanding of his illness.

“. . . Given the above, the Risk Review Board unanimously supports conditional release. He should go through conditional release program and be reevaluated antecedent move off grounds (per policy).”

Contingent on this week’s court hearing, the treatment plan envisions Rowan leaving his locked ward Aug. 12.

He’s at a “very low risk” to commit further violence, the report says.
