Nurses should be aware of changes being implemented in spring 2022, when Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards will be replaced

These rights are protected under the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS), designed to protect people’s rights if they are deprived of their liberty in a hospital or care home in England or Wales and lack mental capacity to consent.
