2 THE CENTERS FOR MEDICARE & MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS)  Some persons may present dangers to themselves or others (including staff).  The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have rules for using restraints.  The rules apply to agencies receiving Medicare and Medicaid funds.  Restraints may be used only to treat a medical symptom or for the immediate physical safety of the person or others.  Restraints may be used only when less restrictive measures fail to protect the person or others.  Restraints must be discontinued at the earliest possible time.

3 THE CENTERS FOR MEDICARE & MEDICAID SERVICES (CMS) (CONT’D)  The CMS uses these terms.  Physical Restraint—any manual method or physical or mechanical device, material, or equipment attached to or near the person’s body that he or she cannot remove easily and that restricts freedom of movement or normal access to one’s body.  Chemical Restraint—any drug used for discipline or convenience and not required to treat medical symptoms. The drug or dosage is not a standard treatment for the person’s condition.  Freedom of Movement—any change in place or position of the body or any part of the body that the person is able to control.  Remove Easily —the manual method, device, material, or equipment used to restrain the person can be removed intentionally by the person in the same manner it was applied by the staff.

4 HISTORY OF RESTRAINT USE  Restraints were once thought to prevent falls.  Research shows that restraints cause falls.  Injuries are more serious from falls involving restrained persons.  Restraints also were used to prevent wandering or interfering with treatment.  Restraints were viewed as necessary devices to protect a person.  However, they can cause serious harm, even death.

5 TYPES OF RESTRAINTS  Restraints are made of cloth or leather. Cloth restraints (soft restraints) are applied to the wrists, ankles, hands, waist, and chest. Leather restraints are applied to the wrists and ankles.  Types:  Wrist restraints (limb holders) limit arm movement.  Mitt restraints (covers the hands)- they prevent finger use and most are padded  Belt restraint (around waits) is used when there is risk of injury from falls and for positioning during medical treatment  Vest Restraints-(applied to the chest)- prevent falls or for medical procedure. Be careful to check the patient’s breathing. COPYRIGHT © 2012 BY MOSBY, AN IMPRINT OF ELSEVIER INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Slid e 5

7 SAFE RESTRAINT USE (CONT’D)  Vest and jacket restraints are applied to the chest.  A jacket restraint is applied with the opening in the back.  The straps of vest and jacket restraints cross in the front.  Vest and jacket restraints are never worn backward.  The restraint is always applied over a garment.  Vest and jacket restraints have life-threatening risks.  You are advised to only assist the nurse in applying them.  The nurse should assume full responsibility for applying a vest or jacket restraint.  Never use force to apply a restraint.

8 SAFE RESTRAINT USE (CONT’D)  Enablers  A device that limits freedom of movement but is used to promote independence, comfort, or safety  Some devices are both restraints and enablers.  When the person can easily remove the device, and it helps the person function, it is an enabler.

9 RESTRAINT ALTERNATIVES  Ensure the patient does not have a need-toileting, pain, hunger, boredom, etc.  Try alternatives to restraints first-sitters, coming to nurse’s station, walk outside, read a book, give a back massage, use alarm on bed or wrist monitor etc.  Consider using matts on floors instead of side rails or vests COPYRIGHT © 2012 BY MOSBY, AN IMPRINT OF ELSEVIER INC.

10 RESTRAINT SAFETY MEASURES Secure to moveable part of bed frame Check the patient every 15 min Take off restraint and toilet, offer food/water and range of motion every 2 hours Check circulation of extremities Always use a quick release tie Ensure restraint is not to tight-flat hand for vest and one finger for wrist COPYRIGHT © 2012 BY MOSBY, AN IMPRINT OF ELSEVIER INC.
