2 Resources/Background Information Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (formerly Health Care Financing Administration) sets standards for all health care providers that receive Medicare and Medicaid - Licensing and certification of providers is conducted primarily by state ( regulatory ) agencies; also conduct investigations - The web site for the CMS is
3 Resources/Background Information HHS Office of Inspector General Report on State abuse and neglect laws which describes the important components of a State system for identification, tracking, investigation and resolution of abuse incidents. - The report finds that up to 90 percent of persons with disabilities reside in facilities, such as group homes, residential schools, and supervised apartments, that do not receive Medicare or Medicaid funding, and thus are not covered by CMS standards - State systems and laws for protecting persons with disabilities from abuse or neglect can vary significantly from State to State. - The report might be used as a guide to assess the adequacy of your state laws on abuse and neglect, including R/S. - The report is available on line at:
4 Resources/Background Information U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) Report on Restraint and Seclusion The GAO's October 1, 1999 report confirms that there is no adequate system of R/S reporting at the state level, making it impossible to determine the true level of deaths and injuries that result from R/S abuses, and preventing independent agency investigations. - GAO called on HCFA to issue regulations which: (1) establish strict standards on the use of R/S in all facilities and (2) require reporting to P&As regarding all deaths and serious injuries among those with mental illness or mental retardation indicating whether R/S was used for investigation by P&As. - Report is available on line at: Then go to search GAO archives ; then type the following phrase in the search box (report number) HEHS "
5 Resources/Background Information Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations (JCAHO) surveys its accredited hospitals every 3 years to ensure compliance with JCAHO standards - See
6 Federal Statutory & Regulatory Protections Regarding Restraint and Seclusion
7 Federal Regulations regarding Restraint and Seclusion CMS issued three sets of regulations prior to effective date of Children s Health Act, which presumably will be revised to conform to CHA; one set of regulations was issued after the CHA, and other new regulations, covering other health care providers, are in the works. CMS has issued interpretative guidelines and questions and answers on the application of the regulations. They are both available at
8 Regulations for Hospitals 42 CFR (f) (CoP s) Coverage - the regulations, which became effective August, 2, 1999 (pre-cha), apply to all Medicare- and Medicaid-participating hospitals, which include shortterm psychiatric, rehabilitation, long-term, children s and alcohol-drug treatment facilities. They are interim final regulations and may be amended. This rule does not apply to the psyh under 21 rules unless those services are being provided in a hospital setting. Conditions of Participation issued in the form of COPs i.e., requirements that hospitals must meet for participation in Medicaid and Medicare.
9 Regulations for Hospitals 42 CFR (f) (CoP s) Emergency use only In the context of behavioral management, the rule specifies that R/S may only be used in emergency situations if needed to ensure the patient s safety and less restrictive interventions have been determined to be ineffective. Can not use for discipline, staff convenience or as a substitute for active treatment, and no PRNs. Different standards for medical and surgical care - Consistent with the approach used by JCAHO, the rule establishes different standards on the use of R/S in the context of acute medical and surgical care (e.g., to ensure that an IV or feeding tube will not be removed). Time limitations Maximum duration of R/S orders are based on age: adults 4 hours; children and adolescents ages 9 to 17 2 hours; and children under 9 1 hour.
10 Regulations for Hospitals 42 CFR (f) (CoP s) Restraint and Seclusion includes: 1. Physical Restraint 2. Mechanical Restraint 3. Drug Used as a Restraint 4. Seclusion/Escort No use permitted for discipline, staff convenience or as a substitute for active treatment, and no PRNs.
11 PHYSICAL RESTRAINT (CoP s) Includes any manual method or mechanical device, material or equipment attached or adjacent to the patient s body that he or she cannot easily remove that restricts the patient s freedom of movement or normal access to one s body.
12 RESTRAINT (CoP s) Definition clarified all sorts of practices may constitute a physical restraint, the key consideration relating to how the material or practice is being used For example, tucking a patient's sheets in so tightly that he or she cannot move is restraining him or her. In that instance, a sheet is a restraint. Putting up side rails that inhibit the patient's ability to get out of bed when he or she wants to constitutes a restraint. Escorting the individual to an area
13 DRUG USED AS A RESTRAINT (CoP s) Is a medication used to control behavior or to restrict freedom of movement and is not a standard treatment for the patient s condition. A doctor orders a PRN medication for his patient in a detoxification program when he becomes violent. The medication is not a restraint because PRN medication is standard treatment to manage the violent behavior of individuals going through drug or alcohol withdraw
14 SECLUSION (CoP s) Any involuntary confinement to a room or area where one is physically prevented from leaving or assisting a person to an area (Escorting). It does not include confinement on a locked unit or ward, but does include separating an individual from others
15 Regulations for Hospitals 42 CFR (f) (CoP s) Who may issue order R/S may be ordered by either a physician or a licensed independent practitioner permitted by the State and hospital to order R/S without direct supervision. This will vary by state Assessments -- a physician or a licensed independent practitioner must see the patient and evaluate the need for the intervention within one hour after its initiation. Training - ongoing education and training required of all staff with direct patient contact; must cover safe and proper use of R/S and alternatives.
16 Regulations for Hospitals 42 CFR (f) (CoP s) Reporting -- hospitals must report to CMS any death: that occurs while a patient is in R/S, or where it is reasonable to assume that a death is a result of R/S. Under these regulations a hospital is permitted to make a subjective determination about cause of death when it occurs after R/S is discontinued; compare with psychiatric treatment facility regulations -- reporting of all deaths provided. CMS shares these reports with P&As. About 75 deaths have been reported to date nationwide.
17 General Provisions for Federally Funded Health Care Facilities (CHA) The Children s Health Act of 2000 (Public , Oct. 17, 2000) [Amends the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. 290aa, by adding sections ]

Funding termination - A facility's failure to comply with any of the above provisions may result in its ineligibility for participation in federally supported programs.
20 Monitoring - Seclusion may only be used when a staff member is continuously face-to-face monitoring the resident. Special Provisions for Non-Medical Community- Based Facilities for Children (CHA) Coverage - Special provisions apply only to public and private non-medical, community-based facilities for children and youth (as defined in regulations to be issued by HHS) that receive support from programs funded under the Public Health Service Act.

That individual must conduct the assessment within one hour after the initiation of R/S and continue to monitor the intervention for its duration.
22 Special Provisions for Non-Medical Community- Based Facilities for Children (CHA) Reporting - Within 24 hours, covered facilities are required to provide a notification to the appropriate State licensing or regulatory agency, as determined by HHS, regarding all deaths occurring at the facility, and regarding the use of seclusion and restraint (in accordance with regulations to be issued by HHS). Regulations - HHS is required to issue within six months regulations which require states that license covered facilities to develop (within a one year period) licensing rules and monitoring requirements concerning behavior management practice. The regulations also will establish standards on the qualifications of staff involved in R/S and their training and certification, and on reporting of deaths.
