Does a specific score on a fall risk scale identify patients at risk for falls in an acute hospital stay

In an ideal world, when patients realize a high score on the fall risk scale and nurses fail to put up prevention strategies, then the patients frequently end up falling. On the other hand, the inhibition tactics habitually come in handy in averting the falling of the patients whenever nurses employ them. This research proposal aims to provide a universal outline on how to carry out a survey to determine whether the scores managed by patients on a fall risk scale is a pointer to whether they will fall or not. It primarily covers the complete research procedure, including the research design, the roles of the researchers and the participants, as well as the methods of data collection and those of data analysis.
In as much as, there are several inherent reasons such as previous history of falling and chronic illnesses that may lead to a patient falling, a myriad of extrinsic factors can similarly be to blame. This includes the failure of the patient to call for help, the event that the patient is on high-risk treatment, as well as late reaction from the nurse or any other healthcare provider on sight. Cases of patient falling can similarly be brought about by inadequate assessment procedures, particularly the failure of a nurse to go with the scores from the fall risk scale. As mentioned in the abstract, those patients who have over time been subjected to high-risk fall prevention plans, have always avoided falling. This research proposal employs an inclusive research process, to establish that the precise score of a fall risk scale pinpoints patients who are in danger of falling in the course of acute hospital stays.
This research proposal aims to make available more insight on the concern as to whether the specific score that the patient attains in the fall risk scale, can be an element in determining whether he or she can be a victim of
