  • It sounds like some kind of an immobilization procedure that might keep your daughter from harming herself or someone else. Did you ask her caregiver?

  • I googled it and from the sound of it, it is a COMPLETE immobilzing restraint of a person. It's usually used to remove an inmate from a cell. There is another one where the person is restrained in some kind of material and it has lead to deaths.

    I would definately have them investigated. I have used a basket hold with out of control kids but never to the point where they cannot move. They are sitting between my legs with their back against my chest and I hold their legs and arms still until they calm down. At anytime, they are actually able to move out of the hold. They just don't realize it. It's more like I am hugging them. They whole time I am talking calmly to them.
