Restraints: Legal Considerations and Patient Rights

OVERVIEW:

Over the last two decades, the use of restraints has declined dramatically in acute, long term care and psychiatric healthcare settings. The pressure to reduce the use of restraints has been driven by both patient advocacy groups and professional healthcare organizations. This program will discuss finding alternatives to restraints in any medical facility. Other programs in this series discuss the legal issues involved in using restraints, and the safe use of restraints when they are necessary.

OBJECTIVES:

After completing this course, the learner should be able to:

  • Identify the types of patients that restraints have traditionally and most commonly been used on
  • Participate in appropriate assessments of patients with the goal of finding alternatives to the use of restraints
  • Describe the training requirements for medical staff that can help reduce the use of restraints
  • Participate in careful, individualized care planning to find alternatives for those who might otherwise require the use of restraints.
  • Describe the importance of investigating patients problem behaviors to get a clearer understanding of their true needs and find alternative solutions to the use of restraints

This program includes workbooks that can be ordered separately.

 This program has been designated for 0.5 contact hours of continuing nursing education credits.
