Suicide and suicide attempts are a frequently encountered clinical crisis and the assessment, management and treatment of suicidal patients is one of the most stressful tasks for clinicians (Fowler, 2012). The purpose of this project was to examine whether current assessment and treatment protocols followed in the ED, Mankato, adhere to best-‐practices as identified through research, as well as to make recommendations to MCHS-‐Mankato for future considerations and potential modifications to existing protocols.
