This web page provides a portal to the Patient Safety Screener (PSS-3) video describing how the brief universal screening tool should be used in acute care settings to identify patients who may be at risk for suicide. The page also provides useful resources to help administer the PSS-3, plan for patients who screen positive and implement screening sustainably.
