Restraint Policy and Procedure #2
The policy has been converted to the new QCS format. The guidance in the area of restraint and restrictive practices has been updated, and the policy format has been refreshed to improve usability and accessibility. Key facts have been developed, and what the Service could do to evidence outstanding practice in the area of restraint and restrictive practices have been added. The policy now has more detail and references the latest government guidance in this area. The policy now has a ‘restraint register’, and the information surrounding bed rails has been removed and will be relocated to a more appropriate policy area.
