Objective: To assess situation of Inpatient mental health screening and suicide prevention of standard operating procedure (SOP). Methods: We invest 306 people to join our study from August 2017 to July 2019, the participants contain 128 patients, 128 healthy people and 50 medical workers. The information is collected by interview and questionnaire, that includes basic information of participants, depression assessment, anxiety assessment and medical workers’ suicide prevention cognition score. The questionnaires include simple questionnaire, Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) and Self-rating depression scale (SDS). Result: In SAS research and SDS research, patient group has higher score than that of healthy people group, that patients were more anxious and depressed than healthy people in this mental health research. And the situation between patient group and healthy people group have big different as the results are statistical significance (p<0.001). In medical workers' suicide prevention cognition test, the test accuracy rates only have approximately 60% in those 3 domains, so medical workers' knowledge of suicide prevention of standard operating procedure (SOP) is far from enough in hospitalization. In particular, suicide prevention measures part has better performance than that of basic knowledge of suicide part (7 out of 12 vs 5 out of 8). Conclusion: The suicide prevention is a serious problem in hospitalized patient, the inpatients have serious mental health problem and medical workers lack related knowledge and skills.
