I think only lawyers look at it. A forensic specialist may know the definite answer to this question. It might be the single most important piece of documentation for legal protection in a psychiatric assessment. ie. patient's family sues you, their lawyer says to you "there is no suicide risk assessment". Which then automatically means you didn't think about it. I moonlight at a place where social workers do the suicide risk assessment. It's nice.
