Definition of a Ligature Risk - The Department of Health and Human Services and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) define a ligature risk as Òanything which could be used to attach a cord, rope, or other material for the purpose of hanging or strangulation.Ó CMS states that patient safety is compromised if such risks ensue.
PatientÕs Rights Condition of Participation (CoP) - CMS maintains that a hospitalÕs PatientÕs Rights Condition of Participation provides all patients with the right to a safe environment, and patients with suicidal ideation or other psychiatric disorders are particularly vulnerable. Ligature-resistant or ligature-free responsibility pertains specifically to psychiatric hospitals or psychiatric units within a hospital. The CMS directs these facility types to take every precaution to minimize patient safety risks in accordance with national standards and guidelines.
The Fire Extinguisher Problem -ÊMany existing fire extinguishers and fire extinguisher cabinet installations present the exact ligature risk that psychiatric hospitals and psychiatric units within hospitals are responsible to eliminate.Ê
