Suicide Screening Tool for inpatient (non psych units)

  1. Hi all,

    I am currently looking for an evidence-based tool that our hospital can use in screening suicide for all inpatients (non-psych units). I've been doing literature search and finding that there is no standard tool out there (unlike skin - you got Braden, falls, etc).

    Are any of your hospitals using a screening tool for suicide?
    Please share any resources or information you have.

    Thanks much!

    Here is a database site that is evidenced based (mental health) in nature:
