Winterbourne View report calls for ban on physical restraint


Having worked within the LB/MH/CB field foe the last 20years and a LD nurse, I do believe there is a time and place for the use of physical intervention but only as the last resort. We have come a long way when people were "decked" for looking at someone in the wrong way. Having been injured by a service user and off work for 2.5 years because the service didnt provide adequate training I know first hand the need for this intervention. What happened in this "hospital" was pure evil and about control not about caring. Good for the nurse who whistleblew. I know its not nice but worth it in the end - at least the servise users will get a life they deserve now.
