Service users receiving any kind of service must be protected from abuse and improper treatment, including unnecessary or inappropriate restraint. CQC Fundamental Standards Compliance, Wales Standards Compliance
Restraint is commonly defined as the use of, or threat of, force to make someone do something that they resist doing. Restraints and Restrictions
Restrictive practices limit a person’s rights of choice, self-determination, privacy, freedom or freedom of movement such as use of bed rails, safety harnesses and lack of the means to freely leave and re-enter one’s accommodation, and should only be used where more serious harm would result if not used.
