No, not necessarily. Typically suicide watch involves putting them in a safe environment (if possible), removing things that they could self harm with (like clothing, hygiene items) and either posting a staff member at their door or having a regular schedule of checks.

I guess that would depend on the facility. Where my husband has been (cdcr, not county) they kept them in their own cell but put a watch on them.
