Understanding mental health seclusion events

A day or part of a day that a patient is admitted to receive hospital treatment, during this time and under certain circumstances patients may require restraint or seclusion due to an immediate or imminent risk to their or others health or safety. The decision to use seclusion is a clinical one, to be taken after other less restrictive options have been considered, tried or excluded. The time of a seclusion event varies, dependent on the clinical need.
