Measure: Identify patients at risk for suicide

Time Period Ending:  3/31/2013

What We Are Doing:

Although this patient safety goal is not a specific requirement for Critical Access Hospitals, we recognize that Alaska has a high suicide rate in its population overall and we seek standardized processes in collaboration with our caregivers that help us assess whether a patient or resident may be at risk for suicide.  Questions can be routed to:  Barbara Bigelow, VP Quality at 907-821-1990.
