Improving patient safety and outcomes are unequivocal goals of hospital organizations because the business of healthcare would not be possible without our patients. One of the most prevalent reasons patients can experience poor outcomes is due to falls. There are numerous interventions already in place in organizations to prevent and eliminate these patient events, but they still occur. This study aims to provide a practical and structural approach to eliminating patient falls by implementing a fall prevention program. This fall prevention curriculum includes utilization of bedside shift report, safety huddles, and code fall teams.
