The sophisticated technology you have adopted to prevent falls does, not only reduce falls, but also contribute highly in meeting the holistic needs of the patients. I have also liked the idea to use colours to monitor the patients that are at risk of falls, and also to monitor beds where the alarm has not been set well. The use of Morse’s scale to ensure that the patients at risk of falls are identified at the point of admission is highly commendable (Tang, Chow &Siew, 2014). In addition, it is commendable that you have gone ahead to apply new research findings in fall prevention, like identifying the medications that increase the risk of falls. Despite the challenges the system is facing, the benefits outweigh them by far. I would like to add that you will need to invest heavily in training the staff so that this gesture of technology can be utilized maximally.
Response to the second document about CAUTIs:
I have liked your post about CAUTI’s prevention, especially the fact that you have based your post on recent research and the recommendations by the Institute of Medicine bout patient safety. I agree that promoting patient safety is a major aspect of maintaining and improving on the quality of care. I also concur with you that; despite the fact that CAUTIs are among the most common types of healthcare associated infections, they are preventable (Carolyne, Craig, Rajender, Gretchen & David, 2010). It is also commendable that your quality care committee of patient safety on the pilot project has come up with proven, evidence-based results of CAUTIs prevention. For sure, the implementation of this new invention in the entire hospital and other health care institutions will go a long way in reducing CAUTIs, as well as, morbidity and mortality due to CAUTIs.
