2023 Together - P427 - Reducing Mechanical Restraint Use on a Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit - On Demand
Mechanical restraint events for youth in inpatient behavioral health are traumatizing and damaging to the therapeutic relationship. Using identifiers of high risk for violence in patients, an aggression screening tool bundled with a collaboratively created safety plan, can reduce the use of mechanical restraints and provide a safer therapeutic approach to care.
