S-4.2, r. 0.01 - Regulation respecting the certification of private seniors’ residence

Full text
54. The operator of a private seniors’ residence may not use control measures involving force, isolation or mechanical means on a resident. In addition, the operator may not use any chemical substance as a control measure.
Despite the first paragraph, as a last resort, the operator of a category 3 or 4 residence may use control measures involving force, isolation or mechanical means in an emergency situation, when alternative control measures have been ineffective in reducing the danger or may not be applied in due time and it is imperative to protect the resident or another person from a serious and imminent danger of injury. In such a case, the operator must apply the control measures temporarily and in the least constraining way possible. The operator must also record in the resident’s file the reasons for which the alternative measures proved ineffective or could not be applied in due time. The operator may not use any chemical substance as a control measure.
