Patient and family education for fall prevention: involving patients and families in a fall prevention program on a neuroscience unit



Journal of Nursing Care Quality 24(3): 243-249



A neuroscience unit in an acute care hospital reported the highest number of falls among the inpatient units. Patient and family education for fall prevention on this unit was added to an existing multifactorial fall prevention program. Through this project, a new fall prevention poster was developed with patient, family, and staff involvement and disseminated throughout the hospital. Using the Plan-Do-Study-Act model to evaluate the project, there were no fall among the patients educated on fall prevention.
