An anti-suicide smock, or turtle suit,[1] is a tear-resistant single piece outer garment that is generally used to prevent a hospitalized, incarcerated, or otherwise detained individual from forming a noose with the garment to commit suicide. The smock is typically a simple, sturdily quilted, collarless, sleeveless, gown with adjustable openings at the shoulders and down the front that are closed with nylon hook-and-loop or similar fasteners. The stiffness of the garment makes it impossible to roll or fold the garment without continuously applied pressure while not impeding the mobility of the wearer.[2] The same material is used for the anti-suicide blanket.
