The alarming fact that 300 nurses in the UK had committed suicide in the past seven years was recently highlighted in the press. Meanwhile, there's no data on the number of nurses taking their own lives in the US. Here the occurrence of nurse suicides seems to be shrouded in silence and denial.

Call for action on nurse suicides

Figures released by the UK Office of National Statistics (ONS) last year showed that between 2011 and 2017 more than 300 nurses had taken their own lives, and that female nurses were most at risk. The suicide rate among nurses was 23% higher than the national average.

Jonathan Ashworth, the shadow health secretary for Labour, called on the government to launch an urgent inquiry into these figures. "The health and wellbeing of our NHS staff must never be compromised," he said. "We must care for those who care for us and our loved ones in time of need."
