The use of restraints is considered an intrusive and dangerous intervention used today. The risk of using restraints far outweigh the benefits of using restraints. Therefore, the use of restraints should be a last resort when managing patients who need protecting or have the potential to hurt themselves as well as others. The Joint Commission and the Centers for Medicare and Medicate Services are also known as CMS have standards and regulations regarding restraint use and have created programs to assist organizations and healthcare personnel in implementing a restraint-free environment. This course is designed to provide you, as healthcare workers in the post-acute care setting, the knowledge to reduce the use of restraints.
