As a nurse, needle stick injuries are one of my biggest fears, and I’m really sorry to hear that it happened to you, and that you had to get OSHA involved in order for your workplace to adopt safer work conditions.

In our unit, almost every patient has a bed alarm and chair alarm. Our unit is neurotrauma; therefore, most of the patients are the risk of a fall. So, having a bed alarm and chair alarm is for the safety of the patient and I would keep the same procedure. However, many types of research have been proven that having so many alarm can diminish the nurses, or nursing aides respond ability to the sound. Therefore, I believe if a patient does not need the bed alarm, then it is better not to use it.

Shift schedules nurses can be particularly effective in preventing falls, as they allow the staff to anticipate and address the needs of each patient. The tubing, drains and cables must be securely to prevent tripping when lifting or embody patients. Although falls can happen without warning, subsequent falls can be avoided if the etiology of them is
