    Description
    • An EBP project to study fall risk interventions and best practices. Our PICOTS questions are “what is the effectiveness of certain fall risk prevention measures in an inpatient setting, and how do they compare to other measures?” Expected outcomes would be decreased falls in inpatient settings due to implementing fall risk prevention measures. It would show a positive correlation between fall risk prevention measures and decreased falls.
