The use of physical restraints in Korean hospital is still popular. However there is little research on the use of restraints and how the use of restraints related to hospital characteristics. The purposes of this study were to investigate the nurse's knowledge level, attitude, and general experiences on physical restraints and to find out relationship between knowledge level and attitude in order to decrease the use of physical restraints in Korean hospitals. Study Design: Data were collected from 530 nurses working in two teaching hospitals and 6 general hospitals. The instrument used to find out knowledge level of restraints based on Janelli (1994) and translated and readjusted by researcher. The instrument for attitude toward restraints was composed of 22 items and developed by researcher. The results were analyzed by t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson Correlation. Finding: About 91% of Korean nurses had experience in applying restraints, and among them 56.4% had experienced complication regarding the use of restraints. About 93% of nurses answered that they should have clinical guideline/protocol on their hospitals but only 11% of nurses had seen them. There was positive correlation (r=.308, p=.00) between the knowledge level and attitude of restraints. Tertiary hospital nurses had less knowledge and more preference in the use of restraints than secondary hospital nurses and intensive unit nurses had more preference in the use of restraints than other specialty nurses. Conclusion: More educational opportunities for the appropriate use of restraints were required to Korean nurses. The strategies to decrease the use of restraints, including development of clinical guideline should be urgently developed. By applying strategies, the use of restraints in patient care settings can be decreased and quality of nursing care can be improved.
