Holding Behavioral Health Patients in ED

Do any of you hold patients in your ED, until a Psych bed opens?

I am looking for a risk assessment that I can perform as well as guidance on policy.

Any information would be helpful. Thanks

    Have you looked at the updated (7.2 edition) of the behavioral health design guide (March 2017) which addresses how to create a safe room for the behavioral health patients and it has a self assessment with it. It is on the facility guideline institute and can be downloaded at no cost at https://www.fgiguidelines.org/resource/design-guide-built-environment-behavioral-health-facilities/ or go to https://www.fgiguidelines.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/DesignGuideBH_7.2_1703.pdf. The patient safety risk assessment tool is attached. This is 114 pages.

    March 2017 the Joint Commission is emphasizing the assessment of ligature and suicide and self harm and it discusses this on page 2.

    Have you looked at the Safety Risk Assessment for healthcare facility environments, 139 pages on the fgi guidelines website, at https://www.fgiguidelines.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/CHD-SRA_v1.2PDF.pdf
