Nurses help to ensure patient safety, which includes preventing falls and fall-related injuries (Quigley, Neily, Watson, Wright, & Strobel, 2017). The general population is at risk for falls and fall-related injuries, more specifically the elderly, 65 and over (Quigley, Neily, Watson, Wright, & Strobel, 2017). Patient falls are one of the top events for hospitals and long-term care facilities due to loss of physical function or cognition (Quigley, Neily, Watson, Wright, & Strobel, 2017). Fall-related injuries are a serious health issue for the elderly population (Quigley, Neily, Watson, Wright, & Strobel, 2017). Nurses make a major contribution to patient safety by assessing fall risk and designing patient-specific fall prevention
Theory: - One concept that I have learned from the lecture that I have applied to my clinical setting this week was the importance of fall risks. I applied what I learned from the fall lecture when I was in the dementia unit. One of the patients had a high fall risk so whenever she would try to get into her wheelchair I would make sure that I was there to help her into it and I would always make sure that after she was put into bed that the giant mats were placed next to her bed when she was in it that way the patient would not get as hurt if she fell trying to get up from the bed by herself when no one was around.

The purpose of this research paper was to examine the latest research and evidence-based practices related to inpatient falls. Falls among the elderly within a hospital setting has increased within the last decade. Inpatient falls have become the second leading cause of death, causing longer hospital stays and indirect costs for the hospital. The research reviewed multiple studies, which discussed the causes of inpatient falls. A few causes included nurses and staff not knowledgeable of current hospital practices, lack of individualized plan of care, and lack of training related to falls. The findings assisted the writer to revise the current fall policy and procedure for Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC). A fall reduction program
Inpatient falls after joint replacement surgeries can cause many complications, prolong hospitalizations and increase healthcare costs. These falls can lead to things such as wound infections and sometimes falls can even require a patient to have a revision surgery. This is especially true in postoperative joint replacement surgical patients. While assessing the orthopedic surgical unit where I work, gaps were found in completing fall risk assessments on patients, which is a requirement. Strategies to prevent falls were not always being followed. Things like a postoperative patient that may require two people to help while ambulating at least for the first day or so was not being done. If the requirement for a two person assist is not

Nursing intervention for fall prevention could improve older adult’ quality of life. Intermittently missing nursing care, also known as error of omission, is related to the staff’s education and skills level. According to Kalisch, Lee, and Tschnnen (2012), falls decreased 4% to 25% in health setting after giving education for fall prevention strategy. In other words, without providing education, there’s a possibility for older adults to fall by a health care provider who has inadequate knowledge for fall risks. Even if aging patients already have a high chance of falling due to their health condition, a health care provider could make the situation worse. Therefore, fall prevention education is important for both older adults and health care providers. Fall prevention requires participation from both sides.

In the opening scene of Survive the Fall by Julia Bright, Kelsey finds herself in Wyoming for the funeral of her brother and father who are killed in an explosion overseas. The alcohol on tap at the hotel bar isn’t doing enough to dull the pain, but it is effectively lowering her inhibitions. She spies a handsome stranger and propositions him to spend the next few hours distracting her from the pain of her loss. Adam’s reluctance turns to enthusiasm as he obliges her request. Under the guise of anonymity, they refer to each other as Angel and Brick and assume they will never see each other again.
