Physical Intervention Incident/Accident Recording

Recording

According to the nature of the incident, the incident will be noted in other records where appropriately maintained in incident/accident record file or child’s tracking sheets. All incidents where there is physical intervention by any member of staff will be recorded. Parents will be informed in person, by phone (or by letter home with the child if this is not possible). Parents will be given copy of the record form.

Monitoring

We will monitor the use of restrictive physical intervention, information recorded will be used to review the individual behavior plan so that the risk of needing to use restrictive physical intervention can be reduced. Monitoring will also help identify triggers or anytrends helping Springtime’s ability to meet the needs of the children without using physical intervention.
