A member asked:

Do you know how mental hospitals deal with suicidal patients?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

See below: Depending on the intensity and severity of your thoughts/symptoms, history of attempts, etc, you might be put, either on 1:1 observation, every 15 min. Checks, etc. Any personal belonging, office supplies, might be removed if you're deemed a danger to yourself and you will be re-assessed quite frequently.
