Restraint Policy and Procedure #3
This policy will guide staff on care and support actions that can be viewed as restrictive and how to decide, record and review if these actions are necessary. During the coronavirus pandemic, there may be strategies implemented to keep people safe who are self-isolating and adhering to social distancing, which are restrictive. However, adhering to government advice is necessary. The policy has been reviewed in light of the coronavirus pandemic, with a procedural section, definitions and references added in relation to this. Existing references and links have been checked and remain current.
