Effect of promoting high-quality staff interactions on fall prevention in nursing homes: a cluster-randomized trial.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Falls represent a significant cause of patient injury in the hospital setting, and evidence suggests that multifaceted interventions may be effective in reducing fall risk. In this cluster-randomized trial across 24 nursing homes, researchers examined the impact of a staff training intervention designed to promote improved staff communication and connectivity on a fall prevention program. They found that the training intervention had no effect on the success of the program.
