Nurses help ensure patient safety, including prevention of falls and fall related injuries. Patient falls are one of the top five sentinel events for hospitals, long term care and home care agencies because of the loss of function and injury that results. American Nurse Today has published a “Special Report: Best Practices for Falls Reduction: A Practical Guide” as a supplement to its March issue. The supplement was developed as a useful, practical resource for nurses to better intervene to reduce falls.

Development of the continuing education (CE) supplement was supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Hill Rom The supplement is accredited for 1.9 contact hours of CE credit.

“Up to half of hospitalized patients are at risk for falls, and almost half who fall experience an injury,” says Pamela Cipriano, PhD, RN, FAAN, NEA-BC, Editor-in-Chief of American Nurse Today. “These numbers, and the potential to influence patient outcomes, make falls prevention an important priority for hospitals.”

The supplement includes how to assess patients at risk for falling, create and maintain a falls reduction program, and select technology options to ensure patient safety. Case studies round out the supplement, which takes a practical approach to interventions.

Among the many national leaders on falls prevention and patient safety who contributed to the supplement are Joan Forte, BSN, MBA, NE-BC, and Carol Kulik, MSN, RN, ACNP, CRNP-BC, from Stanford Hospital and Clinics in Palo Alto, California, and Patricia Quigley, PhD, MPH, ARNP, CRRN, FAAN, FAANP, and Lisa Goff, MSPT, from the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa, Florida, where Quigley is associate director for the Veterans Integrated Service Network 8 Patient Safety Center of Inquiry.

The supplement can be accessed on American Nurse Today's website.

American Nurse Today reaches 175,000 nurses including 160,000 members of ANA. In addition to keeping nurses abreast of ANA’s advocacy for the profession, American Nurse Today provides valuable, peer-reviewed, evidence based clinical, practical and career information that nurses can assimilate into their busy practices immediately.
