Preventing Falls and Reducing Injury from Falls - Third Edition (RNAO)

"This nursing best practice guideline (BPG)* is a comprehensive document that provides resources for evidencebased nursing practice. It is not intended to be a manual or “how to” guide, but rather a tool to guide best practices and enhance decision-making for nurses and other health-care providers working with adults (18 years and older) who are at risk for falls and fall injuries. The Guideline should be reviewed and applied in accordance with both the needs of individual organizations or practice settings, and the needs and preferences of persons and their families accessing the health system for care and services. In addition, the Guideline offers an overview of appropriate tructures and supports for providing the best possible evidence-based care." 129 Pages. Last reviewed October, 2017.
