Suicide safety continues to be a priority for accrediting organizations such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Joint Commission (TJC), requiring many providers to evaluate various policies and processes. They include how to keep suicidal patients safe when care is needed outside of the psychiatric unit, how to ensure suicidal safety in the emergency room, controlled entrances and exits, and more. The MHA Health Foundation webinar Ligature Risks and Preventing Inpatient Suicide: Compliance with the CMS and TJC Standards will review ligature risks in behavioral health, emergency department, and the inpatient setting, complying with regulatory and accreditation requirements, and related issues.
The webinar is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon ET June 14, and MHA members can register for a connection fee of $200. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
