Abstract

in English, German

Coercive measures in psychiatry are used as a last resort if other means to avert imminent danger failed. Our case shows, that even if all precautions were taken complications may arise: We report about a young man, who had been restrained. After the belts had been partly loosened, he again became extremely aggressive. When the restraints had to be tightened he could grab and swallow the Segufix®-Metal Pin.
