Components of a Research Study 2 Protecting Patient Safety: Can Video Monitoring Prevent Falls in High-Risk Patient Populations? Introduction Patient safety is something that can affect almost anyone; there are several things that are determined when it comes to patient safety. Patient safety ranges from distributing the wrong medication to operating on the wrong person, patients having falling accidents and etcetera. Things happening of this nature can stem from job related stress. When nurses are working, they are dealing with a great deal of stress since they have several responsibilities that come along with their position. However, there are many things that can be a solution to patient’s having falling accidents and that can simply be from hiring more nursing staff so that a patient won’t have to go long periods of time without being checked on. Another thing that can eliminate the falling epidemic between patients in a hospital setting could be by video monitoring being implemented. This paper will detail the research study of how video monitoring being a potential solution to prevent patient falls within the hospital. Define the Problem The problem in the article that has been chosen is high risk patients having accidental falls. The reason why this is a problem could be due to lack of monitoring and lack of staff. Most individuals have accidental falls when they need to do something that is immediate like go to the restroom or what have you, they feel like it’s no harm to just get up and go themselves; but they end up doing much more damage than help. With inpatients, they are hooked up to monitors, machines, oxygen, and anything else to help their conditions. The study in the article shows how video monitoring could decrease patients from falling.

Components of a Research Study 3 Identify the Purpose The purpose of this study was to collect video research to see if implementing video surveillance could be the ultimate way in keeping inpatients from falling. In the article, it displays the purpose as being a way to figure out a way that video monitoring could be successful in preventing patients from having accidental falls, however through this research article it displays how other healthcare facilities have now implemented the video monitoring and patients falling has significantly decreased not just in one healthcare center but multiples.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
