Jones KJ, Crowe J, Allen JA, Skinner AM, High R, Kennel V, Reiter-Palmon R. The impact of post-fall huddles on repeat fall rates and perceptions of safety culture: a quasi-experimental evaluation of a patient safety demonstration project. BMC Health Serv Res. Sep 9, 2019;19(1):650.

Huddles are a patient safety tool used by healthcare teams to communicate changes in patient care. This longitudinal study examined the impact of post-fall huddles on inpatient fall rates and found that huddles may reduce the risk of repeat falls and improve perceived safety culture around fall risk reduction.
