Patient falls are a fixture in The Joint Commission's list of top 10 sentinel events; in fact, they were the third-highest sentinel event reported to the accreditor in 2016. Causes of falls range from inadequate assessment, medication or disease side effects, and environmental hazards to a lack of leadership or staff orientation-yet until now, there's never been a single guide on fall prevention initiatives.

Patient Safety Strategies: Evidence-Based Practices for Fall Prevention takes you step-by-step through setting up a successful and sustainable evidence-based multidisciplinary fall prevention program to protect patients. It also covers how to keep proper documentation to avoid possible litigation.

This book will help staff understand:

How to identify risk factors that lead to falls using a multidisciplinary approach

Proper response, documentation, and follow-up assessment procedures to a fall

An evidence-based fall prevention program that is multidisciplinary now includes all members of the healthcare team. This provides patients in all settings with the best and safest approach to the prevention of falls.
