Isolation precautions, such as those to prevent the spread of COVID-19 or other healthcare-associated infections, can result in unintended consequences for patient safety. In this study, researchers examined the relationship between visitor restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic and falls with harm at one Canadian hospital. Findings indicate that only the most severe restrictions (no visitors permitted) were associated with an increase in falls with harms.
