Footnotes

[A] Subacute psychiatric units are generally locked, equipped to restrain or seclude patients if necessary, and staffed by nurses around the clock. Attending physicians typically round at least 5 days per week, and a covering physician is always available to assess patients on site.(1)

[B] Patients with persistent thoughts of suicide, homicide, or serious harm to self or another may need frequent monitoring for progression to planning or intention to act on their thoughts. Such monitoring can be safely conducted in an outpatient level of care if providers and supports are available and the patient can reliably participate in the monitoring process.(4)(21)
