Stakeholder Analysis Falls contributed to 30-50% of the in-hospital injury, further treatment, 6.3 days longer in the hospital, 63 % end in death, cost roughly $14,000 and is the 10 th sentinel incident reported to the joint commission’s sentinel event database (The joint commission, 2015). Preventing falls among psychiatric inpatient will be a significant challenge. Falls expense is expected to cost $43.8 billion by 2020 and has become a disease burden. The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) shows that with every 15 minutes of safety checks, pa, tent falls is 13-15 per 1000 per day in contrast to 4 percent per 1000 patient on the medical-surgical unit (Abraham, 2016 pg. 1.). Fall prevention among patients on a psychiatric unit will be challenging because of their inability to be compliant with fall interventions because they do not want to be there(IVC), and because "they are confused, have cognitive problems, impaired judgment and are unable to follow directions”(Abraham, 2016 pg. 2.).

    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.
