Keeping the Suicidal Patient Safe at Beacon Health Memorial Hospital

Beacon Health Memorial Hospital Implements Successful Virtual Sitting Program:
Zero Adverse Events Found in Study of 500+ Patients. In a proactive approach, Beacon
Health Memorial Hospital assembled a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of frontline staff.
This team thoroughly assessed their existing procedures, developed new policies, and
implemented a stringent patient selection process using the Columbia Suicide Severity
Risk Scale (C-SSRS) for eligibility criteria. Conducting their study across two hospitals
and involving over 500 patients, their implementation of the TeleSitter solution yielded
impressive results: zero adverse events reported.
