Restraints in Dementia Care
A Nurse’s Guide to Minimizing Their Use
Dr. Atul Sunny Luthra, Yarima Gonzalez-Kucinska, Heather Millman
Restraints in dementia care should only be used as a last resort, but they are sometimes necessary to ensure the safety of both the patient and care staff. For nurses and other care providers, it’s critical to know when to use restraints and how to use them appropriately and safely. This resource outlines the process for obtaining informed consent for the use of restraints and provides algorithms for determining whether the application of restraints is appropriate.
