Parliament inquiry into physical and chemical restraint in aged care facilities

There are calls for the Australian Government to scrap new regulations aimed at reducing the use of chemical and physical restraints in aged care facilities.Critics say such practices breach basic human rights and they are concerned the changes will make it easier for them to be carried out.

The use of physical and chemical restraints in nursing homes came under fire earlier this year, during a hearing at the Aged Care Royal Commission in Sydney.

It heard the case of Terry Reeves, who was regularly tied to his chair and administered anti-psychotic drugs.

Today, experts told a Parliamentary Committee examining such practices just how common they are, particularly those involving chemical restraint.
