In a nutshell: This joint US and Dutch study investigated how existing fall prevention technology was experienced within nursing home nurses’ environment and workflow. Two case reports were constructed from interview and observational data comparing the magnitude of falls, safety cultures and technology characteristics/effectiveness. Across cases, 1) a coordinated communication system was essential in facilitating effective fall prevention alert response, and 2) nursing home safety culture is tightly associated with the chosen technological system.
