In a nutshell: Thirty-eight hospitals participated in falls prevention team training, followed by coaching and mentoring over 3 months to develop unit-based initiatives to reduce falls. Initiatives centered on fall risk assessment, rounding, or postfall assessment. Paired t test of the pre-/postintervention fall rates of 23 of the hospitals revealed reduced fall rates (P < .01). The estimated mean decrease was 1.7 falls per 1000 patient days (95% confidence limits of 0.7-2.7).
