Abstract

Using data from 441 newly admitted nursing home residents, we examined whether the diagnoses of mental illnesses, as well as other resident characteristics, were associated with use of physical restraints in both high restraint and low restraint use homes. Predictors of restraint use during both the first month and the first year of admission were inability to transfer and having a combination of severe ADL and cognitive impairment. Other predictors were wandering, inability to dress, symptoms of depression, and severity of cognitive impairment. Key Words: Mental disorders, Dementia, Activities of daily living.
