Agreement Contract For Safety
The Security Treaty is an aspect of suicide risk management that has been too strong in recent decades. What was first created as an assessment tool has become a kind of control box that affects the judgment and formulation of the doctor`s risks. It has been removed from its original context and is now used in virtually all settings, with any type of patient population, despite the lack of clinical evidence, to prove that it is useful and that a plethora of literature warns that it is not. If physicians continue to use the safety contract to manage risks rather than assess them, further examinations are needed to determine whether the risk of suicide can actually be reduced by the use of such a contract. Several cases of suicide in which physicians were held responsible included documentation of a patient`s safety contract. In Reid v. Altieri 33 in Florida in 2007, the jury found both the doctor and the hospital`s negligence, as a patient refused admission shortly after discharge from a psychiatric inpatient service under a safety contract. The patient`s family had agreed to take the patient back to the hospital if his suicidal thoughts returned. The patient was denied admission due to poor communication between the doctor and the hospital. The complainant`s expert testimony implied that the patient`s contract indicated an increased responsibility to the physician and the hospital. Even if the case is not explicitly considered, it is implied that part of the defendant`s negligence was breach of contract.
Contract for safety and immediately removed the seams with a bathrobe. The practice of entering into a security contract follows a 1973 article by Drye et al.1 that examined the application of the non-suicide contract as part of an outpatient therapeutic practice. The practice was originally intended to assist in evaluation and planning and to provide an opportunity to share the weight of assessment and responsibility with the patient. The suicidal patient was asked to make a statement in which he swore not to kill himself accidentally or intentionally, under any circumstances, and to discuss the internal responses to the statement.
