This document has been re-assessed by the committee, and judged to still be up to date.
This Standard is to be read in conjunction with NZS 8134.0:2008 Health and disability services (general) Standard which contains the definitions and audit framework information applicable across the health and disability suite. NZS 8134.2:2008 is the result of the first revision of NZS 8141:2001 Restraint minimization and safe practice. It aims to reduce the use of restraint in all its forms and to encourage the use of least restrictive practices. It provides guidance on restraint minimisation, safe restraint practice, and seclusion. All services must meet NZS 8134.2.1. NZS 8134.2.2 and NZS 8134.2.3 will be assessed as being not applicable to a service where restraint and seclusion are not used. NZS 8134 Parts 0 to 3 are sold as a loose-leaf set, for use in a binder. Each part can also be purchased separately.
