Nursing Responsibilities

The patient will need to be monitored for nutrition, elimination, sleep/wake patterns, and physical comfort. A daily activity schedule should be drawn up for the patient to keep her mind off suicidal thoughts. She should be encouraged to engage in relaxation therapies and pleasant activities. Her strengths and capabilities should be identified and reinforced to help build her self-esteem. Showing care and concern for her well being, and engaging her in achieving a positive self-image will help allay thoughts of suicide.
