Who We Are

AIM

  • Reduce incidence of falls (fall rate) by 40% from baseline by March 2011
  • Reduce injury from falls by 40% from baseline by March 2011
  • Monitor falls rate per 1000 pt days on the pilot unit
slide6

Measures

  • % of patients with assessments completed on admission went from 86.2% at baseline (October 2010) to 100% in January 2011; using the Morse Fall Scale.
  • % of patients at risk with care plans documented was 5% at baseline, and has steadily increased to 33.3%. Strategies have been targeted to try to increase this objective.
  • 3. % of falls causing injury for the 4 month period of October 2010 to January 2011
  • Goal – 40% reduction
  • Total # of falls with injury X 100 =
  • Total number of falls
  • 16 X 100 = 43% reduction
  • 37
  • 4. Monitored fall rate per 1000 pt days ( goal will be a reduction of 40% annually)
    • data for January – Dec 2010
    • 7069 patient days with 55 falls = 10%
    • Will continue to monitor
