The most recent data published by the National Violent Death Reporting System identifies that in 2015, 83 suicides occurred in medical facilities. According to the CDC, the suicide rate in the US has increased more than 25% from 1999 to 2016; 54% of those who died by suicide in that period did not suffer from a mental health condition. Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US taking more than 40,000 lives a year. Most inpatient suicides are the result of hanging, most commonly using a door, shower, ceiling or sink pipe, or another type of fixture as the ligature fixation point. Listen to the Garden City Hospital team to learn about their journey with identifying and monitoring patients at risk for suicide and removing the means to accomplish suicide in the physical environment.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Christopher Allman and Claudia Gering as they discuss:  

  • Ligature risks in behavioral health, emergency department and inpatient settings and the expectations of healthcare organizations from a regulatory and accreditation perspective
  • Strategies for preventing self-harm in behavioral health, emergency department and inpatient settings   
  • The importance of a ligature risk assessment and the mitigation of ligature risks
