    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A physician order for restraints is valid for up to 4 hours because it is important to regularly reassess the need for restraints and ensure the patient's safety. Restraints can be physically and psychologically distressing for patients, so it is crucial to limit their use and regularly evaluate if they are still necessary. By setting a time limit of 4 hours, healthcare providers are reminded to regularly assess the patient's condition and determine if the restraints can be safely removed or if the order needs to be renewed. This helps to ensure that restraints are used appropriately and with the patient's best interest in mind.

This implies that the purpose of the restraint is to modify or manage the individual's behavior, and once that behavior is deemed acceptable or within the desired parameters, the restraint is no longer needed. Therefore, the statement is true.
