Providing Evidence-Based Care: Avoiding the Use of Restraints

The use of restraints in the healthcare setting can severely harm the patient, as well as undermine the trust that is essential in a patient / caregiver relationship. Both CMS and The Joint Commission stress that the use of restraints is a last resort and that alternatives to restraints must be explored and implemented. This program highlights evidence-based strategies for alternatives to restraints.

  • Triggers that lead to problematic behavior
