In a nutshell: “Results of this study identify unintended consequences of fall prevention message on nurses and older adult patients … Intense messaging from hospital administration to achieve zero falls resulted in nurses developing a fear of falls, protecting self and unit, and restricting fall risk patients as a way to stop messages and meet the hospital goal.” Further work is needed
