#Physician #Restraint Orders Unclear On Transfer, Do You Apply In The Interim? #nursefriendly #nursing

#Physician #Restraint Orders Unclear On Transfer, Do You Apply In The Interim? #nursefriendly #nursing:”The use of Mechanical or Physical Restraints on confused patients is highly controversial. Due to substantial Death & Injury attributed to their use they are considered a last resort measure in providing for the safety of a patient. In this case, orders specifying what restraints and when they were to be used were unclear. In a patient that was clearly at high risk for injury, should they have been applied till the physician could have been contacted?”
