In the behavioral health world, much focus is being placed on reducing ligature risks. Ligature risks are those environmental factors that can contribute to an attempted suicide. In its effort to provide the safest environment possible for our patients we are making a financial commitment to reduce these ligatures. The first priority is replacing furniture that is more resistant to being a ligature risk while maintaining the therapeutic appearance of the unit.
