The growing concern around suicide in healthcare facilities, particularly in behavioral health units, has prompted facility managers, clinicians and governing healthcare organizations like The Joint Commission (TJC) to further assess ligature risks. Though patient suicide rates have recently been falling, TJC Journal on Quality and Patient Safety found that 49-65 hospital inpatient suicides occur annually. That is 49-65 too many.
