Is it humane to use physical or pharmacological restraint in the infirmed, dementia or aged care patients?

It seems as a society we are not affording the same human rights to the sick, the elderly or those suffering from dementia as hospitals and aged care facilities are still restraining through the use of physical restraints (secure wards, lap belts) or pharmacological interventions (anti psychotics, sedatives, etc). Does this fall under the radar of the International Declaration of Human Rights, and if so, why?
