The prevention of falls in a geriatric hospital

, : The prevention of falls in a geriatric hospital. Age & Ageing 9(3): 181-185

All falls which occurred in a geriatric hospital in 1 yr were carefully recorded by nursing staff. Falls occurred most often in admission wards, less in rehabilitation wards and even less in long-stay wards. The incidence of falls was lower when patients were confined to bed as a result of industrial action by staff. Very few falls resulted in bone injury. The completion of accident reports by nurses after noninjurious falls is unproductive.

Detailed descriptions are given of the Algerian soft wheats; these fall into four main categories, i.e. (1) precolonization forms, (2) old and (3) recent introductions and (4) hybrid types bred in Algeria in the last few decades. A key for varieta...
