CPT publishes standards on means of restraint in psychiatric establishments for adults
Given their intrusive nature and the potential for abuse and ill-treatment, the CPT has always paid particular attention to the use of various types of restraint vis-à-vis psychiatric patients.
In the light of previous publications on this subject matter and its findings during many visits in recent years to both civil and forensic psychiatric establishments in various European countries, the CPT has decided to review its standards regarding the use of means of restraint and to consolidate them in a single document.
