    Abstract

    The responsibility of hospitals and physicians for suicide prevention continues to be a major problem confronting the health care professions. Suicide induced litigation was reviewed in 1960 and 1965 [1,2] and my purpose now is to bring up to date some of the conflicting issues characteristic of this problem.
