Question: Risk of Violence to Self

Patient has been feeling depressed for the past year and sent to hospital at recommendation of school counselor. Can I answer yes to violence risk to self?

Answer:

The intent of HBIPS-1, is to determine whether a screening question for violence risk to self over the last six months was asked, not whether the patient has a positive finding for violence risk to self. If the screening went back at least six months for violence risk to self, then you would select allowable value "yes".
