Silverman, Morton M.; And Others
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v24 n2 p152-69 Sum 1994
Elaborates on standards of care for assessment, management, and treatment of hospitalized suicidal patients. Attempts to synthesize concepts of minimal standard of care with clinical risk management and clinical judgment. Points out areas of overlap and shows where optimum care diverges from legal standards of care. Tables differentiate responsibilities among clinicians, hospital staff, and administration. (Author/NB)
