THE EFFECT OF HOURLY ROUNDING ON FALL PREVENTION Appendix The following are feedback from patients and nurses on Hourly/Purposeful Rounding on falls prevention. With their consent four patients and nurses were randomly selected to produce feedback on hourly/purposeful rounding. The purpose was to see how effective hourly/purposeful rounding is in patient safety. An analysis of the questionnaire handed over to them showed that 4/4 of the patients felt safe with the introduction of hourly/purposeful rounding as per analysis of the results given in the eight questions of the patient’s questionnaire. Three of the patients questioned knew what hourly/purposeful rounding is which a good thing because as healthcare workers we are to educate our patients as much as possible. Also, all nurses who received the questionnaire felt that hourly rounding is a good initiative in patient safety based on their response to question five on their questionnaire, which allows for them to be proactive. According to the feedback on the sixth question, which is about the purpose of the initiation of this evidence -based practice, all of nurses felt that it is a proper safety measure. Lastly, they all believe that this evidence -based practice could reduce falls rate, which is the main purpose of my project. 13
