JCAHO receives only 400 medical-error death reports per year – less than 1% of the IOM estimate . </li></ul><ul><li>JCAHO implemented a Restraint Death Sentinel Event database in 1996. In the first 10 years, 138 restraint deaths reported. </li></ul><ul><li>Applying IOM estimate to JCAHO data, there could be as many as 1,380 restraint deaths per year in the US </li></ul><ul><li>A more conservative estimate from Harvard Center for Risk Analysis: 50-150 deaths in the US each year due to S/R (NAMI, 2003 ) </li></ul><ul><li>Retrieved from: http://www.jointcommission.org/NR/rdonlyres/167DD821-A395-48FD-87F9-6AB12BCACB0F/0/Medical_Liability.pdf </li></ul>

Later, Roshelle was physically restrained in the prone position and given IM medication. With 8 staff watching, she lost control of her bodily functions, was rolled in a blanket, and carried to the seclusion room. </li></ul><ul><li>Five minutes passed before a staff member noticed she had not moved and was dead. </li></ul><ul><li>According to her grandmother, “ … Roshelle had her share of problems, but good God, no one deserves to die like that.” </li></ul><ul><li>Retrieved from http://www.charlydmiller.com/LIB05/1998hartfordcourant11.html </li></ul>

He was carried into the seclusion room and put in restraints. Sometime later, staff noticed that Ben was cyanotic and dead.

    34. 34. Reality <ul><li>Strictly defined “physical punishment consists of infliction of pain on the human body, as well as painful confinement of a person as a penalty for an offense” (Hyman, 1995 , 1996 ) </li></ul><ul><li>The involuntary overpowering, isolation, application and maintenance of a person in restraints is an aversive event from both the standpoint of logic and from that of the victim (Miller, 1986 ; Mohr & Anderson, 2001 ) </li></ul>
    35. 35. Reality <ul><li>41 patients who had been secluded during their hospitalization were interviewed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>One year after discharge, they were asked to draw pictures related to their hospitalization </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>20 of 41 spontaneously drew pictures of their seclusion room experience – none were specifically asked to do this </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Revealed themes associated with fearfulness, terror, and resentment </li></ul></ul>(Wadeson & Carpenter, 1976 )

An inquest into his death found </li></ul><ul><li>significant “institutional racism” in the NHS. </li></ul><ul><li>( www.blink.org.uk) </li></ul>
    44. 44. Reality <ul><li>Rocky’s death and Inquiry lead to national </li></ul><ul><li>5-year plan, Delivering Race Equality in Mental Health Care, to be fully implemented by 2010 . </li></ul><ul><li>Two of the Inquiry’s key recommendations included: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>limiting restraint time (<3 minutes) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>addressing institutional racism </li></ul></ul>
