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 and 54% of those who died by suicide in that period did not suffer from a mental health condition. They report that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, taking more than 40,000 lives a year. We are aware that most inpatient suicides are the result of hanging, most commonly using a door or its handle or hinge; a head, handle, bar or door in the shower; a ceiling or sink pipe; or another type of fixture as the ligature fixation point. Join us to hear from the team at Garden City Hospital 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.Learn more
