Sometimes restraining or secluding a patient can prevent injury or save lives. Improper use of restraint, however, can cause physical or psychological injury or death. Therefore, restraint and seclusion should never be used as first choices. Instead, they should be used as last resorts and only when absolutely necessary. Patients retain certain rights, including the right to receive care in a safe setting, during treatment. These guidelines are designed to: • Protect individual rights, safety, and dignity • Help your organization comply with regulatory standards Please note: Restraint and seclusion must be applied in accordance with the facility policy and state law and regulations. Some state regulations differ and, generally speaking, the stricter of the two should take precedence unless it conflicts with federal law. For example, some states may not allow the involvement of clinical psychologists. Please consult your supervisor if you have questions.

Approximately 2.5 million patients develop a pressure injury each year. Up to 60,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of a pressure injury (PI). High incidence rates in hospitals may signal poor quality of care. The federal government considers pressure injury development a public health concern. When communication and documentation do not reflect diligent adherence to practice standards, pressure injuries can result in payment denial and may be a basis for legal action against facilities, physicians, and nurses.

Tuberculosis (TB) was once the leading cause of death in the United States, with up to 25% of all deaths attributable to the disease. Due to current efforts, the rate of TB cases and related deaths in the United States has steadily decreased to a record low. This decline is attributed to the work of local TB programs in detecting and treating persons with TB disease. Healthcare facilities and local health departments partner to ensure that people diagnosed with TB complete therapy, limiting the risk of further transmission. The next area of focus toward the goal of elimination of TB is detecting and treating latent tuberculosis bacterial infection (LTBI), especially among groups at high risk. Reactivation of LTBI is a principal driver of TB disease in the United States, accounting for over 80% of all TB cases. This course has been designed to help you understand TB and your role in helping to detect, treat, and prevent the spread of TB
