    Any Psych Meds (Ativan, Haldol, etc.) require consent forms. Physical restraints such as wrist or vest restraints are NOT used. We do have Lap Buddies, though. Side rails are used for help in repositioning.

    Our organization is looking at this too. We have indicated the objectives we want addressed, but not sure of the best format or the best way to present this to nurses. It seems strange that such an important issue lacks resources already available to offer to organziations in the form of video's, classes, etc. Any ideas would be helpful.
