Summary

In accordance with the WA Chief Psychiatrist's Standards for Clinical Care 2015, WA Country Health Service (WACHS) is committed to working with consumers and carers to prevent, reduce and eliminate the use of restrictive practices. Early intervention, assessment, crisis management, deescalation and other alternatives to restraint are preferred interventions of choice in managing patient care and safety. WACHS recognises however that there are circumstances where restraint may be necessary to minimise imminent risk to the patient, visitors and/or staff.
