Ok, guys... Once again the demon of restraint vs enabler raises its ugly head!
1. A side rail that a resident, A&O x3 uses to help get out of bed and turn d/t physical limitations...an enabler? a restraint? how would you code this on MDS?
2. I have an elderly lady, totally dependent on staff for care, unable to stand or even try to stand...lap buddy used as she curls up in the w/c and would fall out without the lap buddy. restraint? She cannot remove this even if she wanted to
3. I have an elderlt man, in a W/c, uses a lap buddy to help maintain trunk control/positionin w/c d/t unable to maintain safe posture w/o this... restraint? He can remove this if he wants to.
Any guidance is appreciated! Thanks!!
