On-Demand Webinar: Re-engineering Fall Prevention During COVID-19: Observations from the Field

Product Summary/Description:


A COVID 19 pandemic tidal wave swallowed common healthcare practices beyond expectation when hospitals fast-tracked environments into ICU isolation zones, and rehabilitation units into hybrid rehab / COVID 19 units.   Care delivery systems were transformed from inpatient rehabilitation to acute-care nursing care models to intensive respiratory isolation nursing care units, where all units were locked down to stop the spread of the highly contagious virus - COVID 19.  Stories from the field revealed from rehabilitation nurses revealed that care practices changed due to these demands. This presentation acknowledges that COVID-19: 

·       is a new and emerging condition that has demonstrated wide variability in patient presentation, clinical course, and patient safety practices;

·       requires adherence to the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the health care setting that contributed to delayed staff intervention to prevent falls; and,

·       has necessitated rehabilitation nurses to provide care in less than optimal and unprecedent conditions to maximize independence while protecting from harm.

Engagement and observations from the rehabilitation inpatient setting across the country have yield trends in reengineered and repurposed clinical care processes and practices.   These observed trends will be presented along with interventions to support the workflow of rehabilitation nurses, promote rehabilitation patient outcomes, and prevent falls
