Nurses want patients who are intent on harming themselves to be provided with clean blades so that they can cut themselves more safely. [...] "My instinct is that it is better to sit with the patient and talk to them while they are self-harming. We should definitely give advice on safer parts of the body to cut. It could get to the stage where we could have a discussion with the patient about how deep the cuts were going to be and how many."
