Year in and year out, patient suicide tops The Joint Commission s list of sentinel events. If your healthcare organization admits and treats patients with primary psychiatric symptoms, The Joint Commission's newest National Patient Safety Goal (NPSG) requires you to screen patients for suicide risk. In addition, Joint Commission surveyors are now conducting a program-specific tracer on patient suicide assessment and prevention in applicable settings. Psychiatric units and behavioral health facilities are familiar with the process of suicide risk screening, but The Joint Commission's new requirements may create confusion for medical staff, patient safety professionals, and nurse managers. HCPro has created a resource to help you determine when, and how, to identify and screen patients for suicide risk, as well as educate staff and provide a safe care environment. Suicide Risk Assessment: Practical Strategies and Tools for Joint Commission Compliance will help you develop or fine-tune your facility's assessment and prevention policies with an eye toward effective patient care, greater staff awareness, and compliance with The Joint Commission's patient safety goal, as well as relevant CAMH standards. Suicide Risk Assessment: Practical Strategies and Tools for Joint Commission Compliance offers the most essential information hospitals need to develop effective patient assessment and suicide prevention strategies. In this book and CD-ROM set, you ll find suggestions on how to develop tools and policies that work best for your facility, meet The Joint Commission's requirements, and help you prepare for survey day. When it comes to providing quality care for a suicidal patient, the best of treatments may not be enough to save a life.
