The Management of Violent or Potentially Violent Patients: Comments on the Confederation of Health Service Employees' Report

Extract

The COHSE Special Working Party Report was a response to guidance issued by the Department of Health and Social Security in HC(76)11 entitled The Management of Violent or Potentially Violent Hospital Patients, which the Confederation considered inadequate. The DHSS Circular had been prepared after protracted discussions with the Royal College of Nursing (Rcn) and the Royal College of Psychiatrists. The COHSE Report extends beyond the issue of the management of violence, and we did not consider all the points put forward in the document (see page 124, para. 2 and page 125, para. 5 below).
