The Rosh Reveal: EPISODE 38

Which Patient Has Risk Factors Correlated With a Higher Risk of Suicide?

March 22, 2020
Welcome to the next episode of The Reveal where we take you inside the mind of a test-taker to deconstruct and connect the dots of a board-style question so you can become a better student, transform how you learn, and excel not only on high-stakes exams, but also in your general medical knowledge. Let’s get started.

Which of the following patients presenting to the emergency department with suicidal ideation would be considered highest risk for completed suicide if released from the department?

A) A 25-year-old African American man who reports depression in the setting of a recent break-up with his girlfriend

B) A 35-year-old white woman with a history of schizophrenia who has not been compliant with her medications

C) A 50-year-old white man who works as a physician and has been diagnosed with severe depressive disorder

D) A 60-year-old married, African American woman with cancer who is tired of her chemotherapy and is ready for “it all to end”
