​Restraint Use

What the CIHI Video (YouTube)

Despite a least restraint use policy being introduced by the Region in 2004, a care home identified more than 50% of residents being physically restrained on a daily basis in 2005. ​

Using quality indicators developed by an international research collaborative (interRAI) and supported by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), the home assessed individual residents and compared the home to other long-term care home.

A shift in care approaches resulted in reduction of restraint use by 40% at the home and 20% across the Region.​

Hand Hygiene​

​ Preventing the spread of germs is a joint effort between staff, volunteers, residents, friends and family.

Hand hygiene, a very simple act, is the most important and effective way to prevent the spread of infection or an outbreak from occurring.  Hand hygiene not only protects residents, but protects everyone, including you and your family, from germs.​
