Additionally the prevalence of self-harm is much higher in in-patient settings, with up to 80% of a psychiatric inpatient sample self-harming (Nock and Prinstein, 2004) compared to a prevalence rate of 15-20% in the community (Heath et al, 2009). Of late, James et al (2012) reviewed the self-harm incident reports from adult psychiatric wards during 2009. The review established that 14,271 self-harm incidents were reported and self-injury in the form of cutting was the method used most. Acute services reported the highest amount of incidents (65%) with forensic services reporting 29%. However, acute services have a higher quantity of beds compared to forensics and therefore there are significantly more reports of self-harm from forensic settings (James et al, 2012). Nevertheless the high rate of self-harm occurring within psychiatric inpatient settings suggests that all nurses will experience someone who self-harms at some point during their career. Nijman et al (2005) estimated that during a year period 84% of mental health nurses will witness mild self-harm and 57% severe self-harm.
