Ligature Resistant Hardware
In December of 2017, the Center for Medicare & Medicade Services released a memo stressing for a bigger focus on assessing ligature risk in healthcare environments. Currently, 75% of all psychiatric ward suicides are via asphyxiation through hanging or environment assisted strangulation. While not all incidents are wholly preventable, the CMS understand that anti-ligature hardware is the best solution to protect safety of patients in these cases.

Marks USA Custom Lock Division has developed ANSI Grade 1 Institutional Life Safety Locksets to address Managed Liability, Accident Prevention, Life Safety and Security in Behavioral Health Care Institutions. The shape and construction of the 5SS55 & 5SS19 Series locksets are designed to restrict the attachment of lines, laces, etc. to door knobs and levers. In addition, with the knobs/levers recessed into the rosettes, the chance of capturing a line between the knob/lever and rosette is substantially reduced. Their Lifesaver Series of anti-ligature hardware meets or exceeds key healthcare regulations, such as JCAHO and ADA.

The 5SSS5 Marks USA Life Safety Lockset is an ideal Ligature Resistant Lockset for mortise applications where a knob trim is prefered.

The 5SS19 Marks USA Life Safety Lockset is a Ligature Resistant Lockset for mortise applications with a lever trim that makes for a fully ADA compliant solution where anti-ligature measures need to be taken.
