7.1. The decision of the executive director of an institution or the person the executive director authorizes in writing to use a measure intended to prevent a child from leaving the facilities maintained by the institution must be in writing and give reasons. The decision must be based on an assessment of the child’s situation that shows there is reasonable cause to believe that the child is at risk of running away and thus placing himself or herself or others in danger, without the child’s situation warranting placement in an intensive supervision unit.
The assessment must be made with the same recognized clinical tools as those used to assess the situation of the child before placement in an intensive supervision unit.
