Restraint Orders Updated

Provider restraint orders for both violent and non-violent restraints were updated, now requiring you to clarify the patient’s behavior that’s necessitating the reason for restraint or seclusion. 

  • For non-violent restraint orders, you’ll now select one or more Restraint Reason options:
    • Attempting to remove tubes/lines.
    • Attempting to interrupt treatment.
    • Other – Specify
  • For violent restraint orders, Danger to self and others was added as a Restraint reason.
