How To Use
Additional Information

This class will focus on the important topic of physical and chemical restraints. We may think we're restraint free, but are we really? We all know that our residents have the right to be free from both physical and chemical restraints. In fact, most (if not all) facilities now have a zero tolerance policy for the use of restraints when used for discipline, convenience or when not medically justified.

The challenge arises, however, when a residents' behavior places that resident (or others) in a potentially dangerous situation. The risk for harm due to falls, elopement and resident to resident (or resident to staff) altercations may lead care providers to consider the use of restraints in order to protect those concerned. Indeed, when we're totally honest with ourselves, are we not still using medication to "support" residents when their behaviors are challenging to staff, or which may put the resident (or others) at risk?

This important class will examine the regulations related to restraints as well as provide powerful approaches for the care of our more challenging residents without the use of physical or chemical restraints. THIS CLASS IS A MUST HAVE for Administrators, Nurses, Social Service Directors, Activity Directors and Staff Developers.  Learning objectives for this class include:

  • Understand restraints and standards for use.
  • Differentiate between restraints and enablers.
  • Understand when the use of a restraint is appropriate.
  • Understand inappropriate use of restraints.
  • Understand the role of the facility in the use of restraints.
  • Learn how to conduct a self review in pursuit of a restraint free environment.
  • Understand Root Cause Analysis in the identification of behavioral antecedents.
  • Learn about behavioral alternatives to physical and chemical restraint when dealing with fall prevention and elopement prevention.
