Back

The correct answer is:

to keep both patients and medical personnel safe


Explanation:

Restraints can be physical (extremity straps, jackets, etc.) or chemical (benzodiazepines, etc.). There may be legal implications as well as facility-specific policies on the use of restraints, including how patients must be monitored. Some medical conditions (i.e. seizures) must include the use of restraints and safety devices.
