Organizational Systems: Task RTT 1 Western Governors University An understanding of nursing-sensitive outcomes and policies would allow the nurse in the scenario to address the multiple defects of this patients care. Firstly restraints are to be used when a patient is violent and or interrupting medical care for example pulling at tubes; restraints are not used to prevent falls (Neiman, Rannie, Thrasher, Terry, & Kahn, 2011).
