    Do any of you have established fall rounding programs? Could you share information with me? Thanks in advance!

    We are in the process of rolling out a pilot program for Falls Prevention Rounding. I am working with our Safety Office to train a handful of volunteers and Unit Secretaries to do environment of care rounds, specifically to identify potential risks, as well as to educate patients and their families on fall avoidance.  We are rolling it out in our 3 highest risk units, with the goal of a 10% reduction in falls. 

    I will have data in a few months, and will be happy to share. 

    Thanks,
