Week 3 Final Project Topic and Literature Review Related to Topic
February 8, 2022


You are assigned some risk management activities in the nursing facility where you work. In

investigating incident reports filed by staff, you discover that this is the third incident this week

in which a patient has fallen while attempting to get out of bed and sit in a chair. How would

you begin to address this issue? Decide how you would start a more complete investigation of

this issue. For example, is it a facility-wide issue or one that is confined to one unit? Does it

affect all shifts or only one? What safety issues are you going to discuss with your staff, and

how are you going to discuss these issues? Do these falls involve the same staff member?
