Patient suicide is consistently the number one sentinel event reported to The Joint Commission. Every suicide is a tragedy that begins with the immediate victim and extends to the family, friends, and caregivers. The fact that most suicides are considered preventable adds to the impact of each occurrence. Suicide Prevention: Toolkit for Implementing National Patient Safety Goal 15A aims at equipping hospitals with the tools and guidance needed to prepare leaders, staff, and the environment of care for the accurate identification and successful management of the patient at risk for suicide. Unique features and benefits: summary of the problem of suicide risk and prevention in the general hospital setting; tips for conducting a nursing assessment and developing a nursing plan for the suicidal patient; hand-off information and modified Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation (SBAR) technique; tracer methodology tools for monitoring care; guide for monitoring the suicidal patient; guidelines and considerations for discharge planning; guidance for managing a family member at risk of suicide; and case studies and practical strategies for coping with suicidal patients. The accompanying CD features customizable forms and checklists for use in implementing National Patient Safety Goal 15 and video presentations explaining the goal.
