Cuttler Case Study
2016

Abstract
To reduce the number of patient falls and the incidence of falls with injury, a two phase quality improvement program was initiated to improve patient safety, including patient education and use of Hill-Rom® VersaCare® beds with built-in, three-mode
bed exit alarms. The fall rate decreased 23% and falls with moderate or major injury decreased by 58%.1 This fall prevention initiative has sustained improved outcomes for more than four years.
