Abstract for:A side effect of fall prevention for inpatient elderlies

In the nursing care setting, falls of inpatient elderlies frequently happen. Most of fall are harmless, but a few of falls induce bone fractures, resulting in disuse atrophy at the worst cases. Additional expenditures of bone fracture and disuse atrophy (frail) are high and their prognosis was tremendously poor. Examples of measures for falls are caring of excretion after prescribing a purgative and a diuretic, and family attendance. Effective measures on fall are few and effect of most measure are limited. We analyzed effect of measures on fall using medical records in a hospital equipped seven hundreds beds. Among fifty measures, only four measures showed significant effects on fall and effects of measures for inpatient elderlies’ fall followed diminishing manner.   Observation of the diminishing manner of fall measurement effect does not match the general sense of risk control that effect of prevention measures increase exponentially. Expanding estrangement between expecting decrease of fall and observed incident falls among inpatient elderlies may eager the administrator of the nursing care to add a new measurement for fall. In the nursing care setting, staff ideally desire zero-risk and change their care. Falls are not rare events in inpatient elderlies and are subjective to
