Solve the biggest ligature risk in mental health

Time: 16:00 - 17:00

Date: Tuesday 02 February 2021


Doors present the greatest ligature risk in mental health inpatient facilities. When we look at the figures from The National Confidential Inquiry into Suicide and Safety in Mental Health (NCISH), they paint a stark picture:

  • 90% occur in the patient’s bedroom or bathroom
  • 91% occur under intermittent observations
  • 46% occur using the door or door hardware

Clinical staff can’t be everywhere at once; and the integration of assistive door alarm technology is increasing. With different options available, how can you make the most informed decision?

In this webinar, we’ll look at:

  • Research and feedback from clinicians and estates teams demonstrating the need for full-door ligature detection
  • Key considerations when selecting a ligature detection system
  • Mental health care providers who are saving lives with the integration of full-door ligature alarms
