Description:
This activities report includes data reported to the Mental Health Commission on the use of three restrictive interventions during 2010. Data are presented on the use of seclusion, mechanical restraint and physical restraint based on returns from 67 approved centres. In 2010, 29 (43.3%) approved centres recorded episodes of seclusion. Thirty-seven approved centres (55.2%) reported that they do not use this intervention. One approved centre (1.5%) indicated that seclusion is used in the approved centre but that they did not record any episodes during 2010. In total, 2,371 seclusion episodes were reported in 2010, which is equivalent to a rate of 55.9 per 100,000 population. Compared to 2009, there was a decrease of 146 in the number of seclusion episodes recorded.
