AHA’s Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence initiative and the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare today released a guide to help hospitals prevent patient falls and associated injuries. The guide describes contributing factors and solutions to prevent falls, identified by the center’s project to prevent falls with injury. The center’s Targeted Solutions Tool helps hospitals measure and analyze the contributing factors unique to their organization, based on 30 root causes and 21 targeted solutions. Hospitals participating in the project reduced patient falls by 35% and falls with injury by 62%. The tool is available to all Joint Commission-accredited organizations. AHA is a sponsor of the Joint Commission center.
