Background and Aim: Agitation occurs in many patients hospitalized in medical centers. The use of physical restraints by the medical staff is one of the measures to prevent harm to patients and caregivers. Nursing students are one of the members of the medical staff in the future, and it is necessary to check their level of preparation for the proper use of physical restraints. Therefore, the present study was conducted with the aim of determining the knowledge and attitude of nursing students regarding the use of physical restraint in patients.
Materials and methods: The present study is of descriptive cross-sectional study type. Sampling was done by census method and was used to collect demographic information form and standard questionnaire of knowledge and attitude in the field of using physical restraints. SPSS version 16 software and independent t-tests, one-way analysis of variance and Pearson's correlation coefficient were used to analyze the data. The significance level of the data was less than 0.05.
Results: The attitude of the majority of participants was at an average level, however, only 19.7% of students had good knowledge about the use of physical restraints. Master's students had better knowledge than undergraduate students (P<0.005).
Conclusion: According to the results of the study, the state of knowledge and attitude of students is not favorable. Since nursing students are future nurses, it is necessary to consider corrective measures to improve their condition in the field of physical restraints.
