Falls case studies - June 2018
During the first 3 months of 2018, the Scottish Patient Safety Programme – Acute Adult (SPSP-AA) team visited four NHS boards who were reporting an improvement in the rate of falls and falls with harm in their acute hospitals. The purpose of these visits was to undertake case studies to explore and understand the factors that may be influencing these successes. The learning has been shared with other NHS boards and supported the revision of the falls diver diagram and change package click here to access the Driver diagram.
