Here is my experience from an assisted living (retirement) facility... Depends on the facility, keeping in mind that every situation is different. Usually the Nurses call the MD for directives/increase meds, if that fails, they may Form 1 the resident if they are very aggressive and are harming other residents/staff, transfer to another facility is also an option, or send to emerg. As I said, every situation is different and it depends if the onset of the behaviours was sudden or if there is a Hx.
