This Pacing Event will focus on sharing successes that HENs have achieved in preventing falls and falls with injuries. The event will highlight specific interventions and their associated outcomes, as well as similarities and differences in falls prevention work between pediatric and adult populations.
Specifically, representatives from Ohio Children’s Hospitals’ Solutions for Patient Safety will discuss their falls prevention bundle and strategies for sustaining falls reductions since 2014. Their presentation will include the HEN-level perspective and outcomes on this work, as well as feature the work of the Dayton Children’s Hospital.
In addition, Katherine Jones, PT, PhD, and Vicki Kennel, PhD, from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, will share their work on two interventions that have had an impact on falls rates across 16 critical access hospitals. They will discuss an organizational-level intervention, in which they created interprofessional falls risk reduction “coordinating” teams to manage the falls risk reduction program, as well as a bedside intervention involving the availability and use of gait belts. For each, Drs. Jones and Kennel will share outcomes and present the practical takeways that HENs and hospitals can apply in their work.
A patient perspective on falls prevention will also be featured.
The session will be chaired by Kendall Hall, MD (NCD). Please bring your questions, comments, and experiences to share.
