Full text
77. When alternative control measures are applied to reduce the danger, the operator must
(1)  advise without delay the resident’s representative, if applicable, and the person to be contacted in the event of an emergency. If that person cannot be reached in time, the operator must notify a close relative;
(2)  ask the local authority concerned to assess the resident’s condition; and
(3)  ensure that the following information is recorded in the resident’s file:
(a)  the date and time of the intervention;
(b)  the alternative measures applied, the reason for applying the measures, and their effectiveness; and
(c)  the name of the persons who have been informed of the situation, the date and time when they were informed, and the information provided to them.
When exceptionally, considering the seriousness of the danger and emergency, alternative control measures may not be used to reduce the danger, the operator must ensure that the reasons for which the measures were rejected are recorded in the resident’s file.
