Pennsylvania Restraint Reduction Initiative

Grant-funded since 1996, the Pennsylvania Restraint Reduction Initiative (PARRI) has been serving the state ever since. PARRI has been praised for providing leadership, direction, and technical support to over 700 long term care providers throughout the Commonwealth.

Pennsylvania has seen a 97.6% drop in physical restraint use since the project’s inception. The training team provides free assistance to Pennsylvania facilities not only on physical restraint elimination, but also chemical restraint reduction, fall management, bed and side rail safety, family/staff relationships, pressure ulcer prevention and dementia care training.
