Suicide risk increases following hospital discharge for injury

June 22, 2017

Adolescents discharged from the hospital after adversity-related injury, including self-inflicted, drug- or alcohol-related, or violent injury, had significantly higher risk for suicide 10 years post-discharge, except females with violent injury.

“Our findings show the enormous value of using routinely collected patient data to spot opportunities for the NHS to intervene to reduce risk of harm for vulnerable patients, many of whom come back to the hospital time and again,” study researcher Ruth Gilbert, MD, of UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, London, said in a press release.
