All organizations strive for falls to be “never events” in healthcare. However, falls remain among the top adverse events patients experience in our care. When a fall occurs, efforts must be implemented to decrease the chance of reoccurrence. During this session, participants will appreciate the role of a post fall huddle as a group consensus approach to determine immediate/root cause of the fall. Dr. Quigley will provide tools for post fall assessment, case studies for application, and resources to determine preventability. She will also outline a program evaluation model to determine post fall huddle program effectiveness.

Upon completion learner will be able to:

  • Differentiate Post Fall Management Strategies
  • Describe the Post Fall Huddle Process
  • Determine Effectiveness of the Post Fall Huddle Intervention

Pressure Injury Reporting Easy as PAI

Recorded eCourse presented by ARN on 5/3/2017

Laurie Crookenden, BS, RN, CWOCN, CRRN
Carolinas Rehabilitation

The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel definitions for pressure injuries and the reporting of stages according to CMS for the IRF PAI are not exactly the same. This can lead to confusion and discrepancies in documentation and reporting. It is critical to have consistency in documentation as well as thorough assessments of skin throughout the inpatient rehabilitation stay. This discussion will focus on staging, documentation and ways to maintain consistency for reporting to CMS. This education will be beneficial for those nurses who work in inpatient rehabilitation facilities or those who report using the IRF PAI tool.

Upon completion learner will be able to:

  • Discuss the assessment of pressure injury staging in the context of the CMS reporting standards.
  • Describe solutions for documentation of pressure injury staging to meet the CMS reporting requirements.
