Other / psychiatry
French term or phrase: Wend faite
Apart from being my sister's nickname for me as a child - and which I hated - I cannot find any meaning for Wend in psychiatric terms!

I don't have much context, but it seems to be a report on a drug trial for a patient, in the psychiatric department. Other symptoms are maniac episodes, psychomotor agitation, tense, sweating...

5 septembre:
- A refusé le traitement du protocole hier soir
- A dormi un peu cette nuit
- Wend faite et sortie d'essai

Any ideas?

Thanks

I think this is a case where we may never know, so have to go on the most likely scenario. I am going to flag this to the client nevertheless.

  -> Thank you.

agree  Lori Cirefice: week-end, yes that would be my guess too
6 mins
  -> Thank you Lori.

agree  Irene McClure: That's what I had thought too - if you Google 'wend psychiatre' you get loads hits for chatrooms and other sites where people use 'wend' to refer to weekend.
