Product Description

Product Description

Preventing Patient Suicide is a brand-new resource developed to help health care organizations comply with the new suicide prevention requirements from The Joint Commission that go into effect July 1, 2019. It provides practical instruction for reducing the risk of patient suicide both in the facility and in the vulnerable time after discharge. The Joint Commission revised its National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG.15.01.01) to address updated safeguards, including screening and assessment practices, a ligature-resistant physical environment when called for, and patient monitoring. These factors underscore the need to be vigilant for suicide risk and to take measures to ensure that care is provided in the safest setting possible.
 
To develop updated guidance, The Joint Commission assembled expert panels in 2017 with representatives from health care organizations, experts in suicide prevention and design of behavioral health care facilities, Joint Commission surveyors and staff, and representatives from the US Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The recommendations of these panels inform the new requirements and the information provided in this book.
 
Key Topics:
  • National Patient Safety Goal 15 and its revised elements of performance
  • Suicide screening, lethality, and protective factors
  • Environmental risks and how to assess, eliminate, or mitigate them
  • Validated screening tools for suicide ideation and assessments of its severity
  • Counseling and follow-up care following discharge
  • Monitoring policies and procedures for screening, assessing, and managing individuals at risk for suicide
Standards: Environment of Care (EC); National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG); Provision of Care, Treatment, and Services (PC); and Care, Treatment, and Services (CTS)
 
Settings:
  • Behavioral health care settings
  • Psychiatric hospitals or units
  • General hospital settings 
Key Audience:
  • Professionals in behavioral health care, psychiatric hospital, or general hospital settings who care for patients with a primary or secondary complaint of an emotional or behavioral disorder
  • Staff in emergency departments or other units who are likely to encounter patients at risk for self-harm or suicide even if that risk is not related to the reason for hospitalization
