Every suicide is a tragedy that begins with the immediate victim and extends to 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.

This toolkit is also designed to help organizations comply with Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goal 15, requiring the identification of safety risks inherent in the patient or client population.

The CD-ROM component of the toolkit offers brochures, forms, and checklists to customize for use in your organization, as well as a list of suicide prevention resources along with their contact information, a video explaining National Patient Safety Goal 15A, and Joint Commission standards related to suicide prevention in the general hospital setting.

JCR is an expert resource for health care organizations, providing consulting services, educational services, and publications to assist in improving quality and safety and to help in meeting the accreditation standards of The Joint Commission. JCR provides consulting services independently from The Joint Commission and in a fully confidential manner. Please visit our Website at
