Restrictive practices are any type of support or practice that limits the rights or freedom of movement of a person. There are many different types of restrictive practice, including; seclusion, chemical restraint, physical restraint.
Sometimes in our care setting, restrictive practices are implemented to ensure the safety of the service user and others around them. Service providers must ensure that they follow the guidelines in place to introduce a restrictive practice; “because restrictive procedures may be necessary at some time in a residential service, there must be clear arrangements in place to ensure that these procedures are always legitimate, safe and minimal.” (HIQA, 2016).
It is also important for service providers to look at other ways of supporting the service user and reducing restrictive practices.
