Use these Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycles as a guide to develop your own or try any that you think might work in your facility.
Restraints can cause harm, but there are alternatives. By making informed decisions, we can make resident care safer. Learn about your residents’ physical and emotional needs and individualize their care plans to meet needs. Ask questions about each resident in your care, and for those with restraints, use restraint alternatives when possible.
