  1. Fulltext. Reducing the use of physical restraints in nursing homes : will it increase costs ?

    Article - En anglais



    Reducing the wide-spread use of physical restraints in nursing homes is a primary goal of the federal nursing home reforms enacted as part of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987.

    However, some nursing home operators assert that reducing restraint use could be prohibitively expensive, costing payorts perhaps as much as $1 billion annually.

    We investigated whether nursing home residents free from physical restraint require more care and ressources than similar residents who are restrained.
