Facebook Live on Avoiding Drugs as Chemical Restraints

July 08, 2020 - July 08, 2020        

Everyone who enters a long-term care facility deserves quality, person-centered care. Too many residents, however, are being given off-label antipsychotic drugs to control challenging behaviors or for caregiver convenience. When used this way, these drugs are chemical restraints. 

We'll have a discussion with Kelly Bagby of AARP Foundation Litigation to talk about why the off-label use of antipsychotic drugs is a problem, your rights around medications and caregiving, and what to do if you think your loved one is being chemically restrained.

Watch on Facebook Live!
