2In-hospital falls prove to be a significant cause of injury in hospital settings; according toa multicenter study, falls accounted for almost 40% of all recorded patient occurrences in theBritish National Health System. Due to the obvious effect on length of hospital stay (LOS) andresource consumption, they result in higher hospital expenditures. Empirical shortcomings inearlier studies of the expenses of falls included limited samples from specific hospitals, solitarycollection of fall events (leading in assessment bias), projected cost depending on the diagnosis-related class or per diem charges, and pricing data older than 10 years.The SettingHospital falls have become more common, both at the bedside of clients and in thebathrooms. Patients who are attempting to get out of their beds are occasionally unable to do soand fall as a result (Taylor, 2012). Patients that use the restroom frequently fall as aconsequence of the slippery surface and their fragility caused by strong anesthesia or overallbodily weariness.The Problem, Issue, Suggestion, Initiative, or Education NeedIt is worth noting that this condition primarily affects senior people aged 65 and up. Animportant contributing aspect is that older people may have weak bone structures as aconsequence of their age, culminating in general failure, which frequently leads to falls while inthe hospital (Thomas & Mackintosh, 2015). Furthermore, a reduction in the amount of timenurses interact with patients deprives nurses of the chance to monitor patients and prevent falls.
