HOSPITAL REPORTING OF DEATHS BY RESTRAINT AND SECLUSION §

The Patients’ Rights CoP establishes, among other things, a reporting

requirement for all hospital deaths associated with the use of restraint

or seclusion for behavior management (42 CFR § 482.13(f)(7)). The term

restraint includes either a physical restraint or a drug used as a

restraint. A physical restraint is any manual method or device used to

restrict freedom of movement or access to one’s body. A drug used as a

restraint is a medication that is used to control behavior or restrict

movement, which is not standard treatment for a patient’s medical or

psychiatric condition.§
