Creating and sustaining an effective and aggressive falls prevention program in your facility is made easy by adding this essential video and trainer’s guide to your in-service offerings. Balancing Act teaches you and your learners why falls happen, how to assess a resident upon admission, what interventions to adopt for each resident, and how to identify and document the facts and circumstances surrounding a fall.
The video focuses particularly on understanding and executing the balance that must be struck between maintaining residents’ mobility and autonomy and preventing and eliminating falls. The trainer’s guide helps you cover the key points and provides additional discussion points to propose during the training session. The guide also includes a sample resident fall risk assessment form, a worksheet for fall investigation and follow-up, and a WordFind puzzle activity to reinforce the concepts taught in the video.
