Suicide is the eleventh leading cause of death in the United States. Our Nation loses 30,000 lives to this tragedy each year, another 650,000 receive emergency care after attempting to take their own lives (Data from National Strategy for Suicide Prevention). According to the Joint Commission, 75 percent of inpatient suicides take place in the bathroom, bedroom, or closet. Facilities cannot afford both financial and moral risk of leaving open opportunities for suicide or self-harm in the built environment, particularly in patient bathrooms. NW SecurityBar® with end caps eliminate ligature attachment points and space for hiding items. NW SecurityBar® is your wise choice!
