WEBINAR: Ligature Risks -- Ensuring Compliance

Thursday, April 19; 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This program will focus on the requirements for hospitals to prevent ligature risk and self-harm to suicidal patients. Any hospital that receives Medicare must implement these changes for all patients.  Lead speaker Sue Dill Calloway will share tools and resources to help identify the CMS and Joint Commission updates that hospitals should make sure are implemented. For CMS updates, this includes what units need to be ligature resistant, what patient and environmental assessments need to be completed, and what policy and procedure requirements must be followed. Dill Calloway will also discuss the Zero Suicide Campaign and the TJC Sentinel Event Alerts on suicide.  For more information, visit here.
