Describe the steps that should be taken to check for injuries following an incident of challenging behaviour

Following an incident of challenging behaviour, individuals should be checked for injuries, ideally by somebody that was not involved in the incident. If physical interventions were used, it is important to carefully check for injury on the areas where physical contact took place. First aid should be applied where necessary, however if first aid is not sufficient the emergency services should be called. It is also important to record any injuries on the incident report.
