Hospitals are at high-risk for suicide, even when regular patient monitoring checks are in place. In fact, over 1,500 suicides occur in hospitals each year. A joint commission study on suicides at VA hospitals found that doors and door hardware were the primary anchor point for 28% of ligature related suicide and suicide attempts - nearly double the next most common attachment point.
Suicide has a higher death rate in jail than in general population. Suicide is also the single largest cause of death while incarcerated (29%) - the only cause of death to occur at a higher rate in jails than in the general population. This problem also extends to juvenile confinement facilities. In a study from 1995 through 1999, ligature strangulation was used in 98.7% of suicides at such facilities, with door hardware used as the attachment point in more suicides than any other means (20.5%).
