Extended care and nursing home staff attitudes toward restraints. Moderately positive attitudes exist

Extended care and nursing home staff attitudes toward restraints. Moderately positive attitudes exist

Journal of Gerontological Nursing 20(3): 23-31

1. The average score on the Restraint Questionnaire for Staff indicated that the extended care and nursing home staff members in the study presented had moderately positive attitudes toward using restraints. 2. There were no significant differences in attitude scores based on gender, position, education, or clinical experience. 3. Collaborating with another professional, especially a physician, was related to a more positive attitude toward restraints; this effect approached statistical significance. 4. Sixty-five percent of the staff could offer no alternatives to restraining a patient; for those who could offer an alternative, increasing staff size was cited most frequently.
