Ues of Restrictive Physical Interventions (Restraint) at Iris Care Group


Restrictive physical intervention, also known as restraint or physical restraint, is only ever used when all other attempts to keep a person safe have failed. At Iris Care Group we spend a lot of time and resource trying to reduce the use of restraint.

Restraint involves physically limiting or restricting a person’s movement in order to keep them safe and to keep other people safe in the event of an incident involving serious physical aggression or a serious attempt at self harm. We may also sometimes be required to use restrictive physical intervention to provide personal care, to preserve the dignity and safety of people who cannot consent to or undertake their own personal care.
