Simple techniques to promote safety and prevent patient or staff injury are outlined, as well as methods to maintain control of the situation when a patient is acting out. Appropriate methods for supporting family members and eliciting helpful information from them are also illustrated. Restrictions on the use of restraints, both physical and chemical, are also addressed. Proper documentation of observed behaviors is discussed.
