This paper focuses on the work of an inpatient service in an acute care safety net hospital in the prevention of suicide on its inpatient service and during the high-risk period post discharge. The strategy utilized a comprehensive proactive systems approach to the suicidal patient including: a formalized suicide assessment jointly done by medical and nursing staff, accurate diagnosis and best practice treatment, a flexible nursing observation policy, groups on inpatient units focused on suicide and key risk factors and triggers, and a communication tool to the next level of care that describes the strategies learned by the patient to deal with his or her suicidality. Incidents of self-injurious behaviors and special observation hours were monitored.
