Relationship between call light use and response time and inpatient falls in acute care settings.

Tzeng H-M, Yin C-Y. Journal of clinical nursing. 2009;18:3333-41.

This study found that increased call light use was related to less fall-related patient harm, suggesting a potential indicator for ongoing measurement at the unit level. As hospitals search for effective interventions to reduce falls, the authors advocate for tracking call light use and response time to further explore these relationships.
