Patient suicide is a significant problem for healthcare organizations.  Inpatient suicides are devastating for friends and family of the individual, and can be traumatic for both healthcare providers and other patients in the vicinity of the incident.  Hospitals assume a variety of high costs associated with poor suicide risk detection and subsequent completed suicides within 72 hours of hospital discharge.  This webinar will discuss the history of the 2016 Joint Commission mandate for universal suicide risk screening, as well as current directions related to the recommendation.  Assessment options for imminent suicide risk, safety recommendations for at-risk patients, and best practices associated with post-discharge care will be addressed.  After attending this webinar participants should be able to identify a variety of procedures for improving patient safety related to self-harm behaviors in healthcare settings.

In the latest Healthcare Risk Management Update, Mike Midgley hosts Bill Hudenko, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Phychiatry at Dartmouth's Geisel School of Medicine. They discuss:

  • Identifying the most effective and commonly used tools for imminent suicide risk detection
  • Developing an effective set of safety guidelines for at-risk patients in the hospital
  • Best practices for patient post-discharge planning

Episode 18: Signing Your Rights Away

Expenses to US healthcare organizations and providers can become exorbitant due to the cost of medical malpractice. Arbitration agreements, which are incorporated into the admission process in many healthcare organizations, can reduce this burden by decreasing the number of jury trials and legal defense costs, promoting timely resolutions, eliminating the concern of unpredictable jury verdicts and damage awards, and maintaining disputants’ privacy. If a dispute proceeds to litigation it is beneficial to have a case heard in a reasonable venue, and a choice of forum agreement is valuable to incorporate in the admissions process.
