namely a system closed to any feedback, influences, entities, events, and factors that may affect its activities, choices and determine its opportunities. Applying this definition to the context of the problem identified at my organization, the rise in falls’ rate is not due only to failure to identify Elderly patients with a high risk of falling at the assessment. It is also due to a failure to report any falls that occur simply because it may result in a penalty or bad rating for the organization and reprimand or sanctions against the caregiver who was in charge of this patient at the time of fall. So, the system operates in isolation when nurses assessing the patients fail to identify and report in a patient’s file those at high risk of falling. This is also a closed-system when subsequent healthcare professionals from the various units or departments of the healthcare organization, working as part of the care team, fail to report the fall of patients under their care for some of the reasons mentioned. Identifying and reporting falls consistently would have made it possible the leadership or any other entity with the power to establish and enforce aprotocol of fall prevention with clear guidelines for implementation and evaluation. How would this issue be resolved from an open-system perspective?Open-ended perspective

An open system is a system that regularly exchanges feedback with its external environment. As opposedto closed-system, in this system inputs, processes, outputs, goals, assessment, evaluation, and learning are all important. Examining the rise of falls among Elderly patients from the open-system perspective offers a healthy approach to problem-solving in a system. Because, exchanging feedback with the environments, analyzing that feedback, adjusting internal systems as needed to achieve the system’s goals, and then transmit the relevant information back out to the environment would have caught the attention at a very early stage of the issue. In the closed-system perspective characterized by a high level
