The impact of staff suicide on a psychiatric inpatient unit.

Abstract

A staff nurse on a psychiatric inpatient unit committed suicide. A retrospective study of patients and staff reactions was conducted. It showed that the inpatients dealt openly and effectively with grieving. Staff had a great deal of difficulty with the situation. One of the nurse's outpatients required rehospitalization. Recommendations for more attention to the staff mourning process were made.
