Minimising restrictive practices

Restrictive practices refer to any practice or intervention restricting the rights or freedom of people receiving aged care.

If required, restrictive practices must only be used:

  • in the least restrictive form
  • for the shortest period
  • to prevent harm to a resident or other people, and
  • only after careful consideration about how it may affect the resident.
