Adverse effects associated with physical restraint

by Wanda K. Mohr, Theodore A. Petti, Brian D. Mohr
Canadian Journal of Psychiatry ()

Abstract

Restraint use is not monitored in the US, and only institutions that choose to do so collect statistics. In 1999, investigative journalists reported lethal consequences proximal to restraint use, making it a life-and-death matter that demands attention from professionals. This paper reviews the literature concerning actual and potential causes of deaths proximal to the use of physical restraint.
