1:1 observation protocols

By Kristen Kelly posted 09-16-2021 02:06 PM

I believe this was shared before, but does anyone use a protocol for starting a 1:1 observation, what restrictions a patient may have while on different observation levels, and/or protocols for discontinuing a 1:1 observation?

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Our protocol involves using the CSSRS to determine need for a 1:1 based on suicidality. I have seen multiple levels of observation used inpatient at our state hospital but am unsure if it is just a subjective choice from the team.
