This policy is designed as important step in improving the our practice's ability to tackle incidents involving violence and abuse. The aim is to detail the types of behaviour which are unacceptable and the sanctions available in the face of such behaviour. This will include a mechanism whereby patients or service users who are extreme or persistent in their unacceptable behaviour can, as a last resort, be excluded Persistent unacceptable behaviour refers to behaviour both within one admission /episode of care / or contact and /or over a number of separate occasions within the period of the sanction. The policy aims to create a balance between the need to protect staff properly and the need to provide healthcare. As the first step in tackling the issues of violence and abuse, the our practice will continue to develop initiatives and training, following the introduction of this policy.
