Proper and Improper Use of Restraints

Nursing homes in New York are allowed to use restraints only to ensure the physical safety of the residents. For example, a patient at risk of falls may be restrained in his or her wheelchair to prevent injury. Excessive or unmonitored use of restraints and the failure to use restraints when needed that results in injury to the resident creates liability against the nursing home.

Our attorneys thoroughly investigate cases of restraint injuries. We will look for answers to questions such as:

  • Was the use of restraints authorized by a doctor?
  • Did nursing home staff use the type of restraint in the proper manner authorized by the doctor?
  • Did the nursing home improperly use drugs to sedate the patient?
  • Did use of restraints constitute elder abuse?
  • Did the nursing home fail to use restraints when needed?
