Health and disability services Standards - Health and disability services (restraint minimisation and safe practice) Standards

The Ministry of Health has sponsored access to view and print a single downloadable PDF copy of this standard at no charge. Standards New Zealand also offers this standard to be purchased as Hard Copy or Online Library subscription.
Primary birthing centres, hospices, overnight hospital inpatient services (public and private), age-related residential care, residential addiction, mental health, and disability services need to meet the requirements of NZS 8134.2:2008 until 28 February 2022, when the updated Ngā Paerewa Health and Disability Services Standard NZS 8134:2021 comes into effect.

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.
