Any deviation from this clearly defined outcome will hint on interfering issues in patient care. In a sense, while an NSI indicates a level of quality achieved in nursing practice, it also indirectly detects outlying factors or interfering issues associated with the specific care structure or process.

The medical investigation of a patient with hyperacusis is intended to differentially diagnose possible associated or underlying diseases, some of which can be treated. Treatment might alleviate the hyperacusis and associated symptoms and might possibly cure a life-threatening disease. Clinical History The clinical history can provide important clues about etiology (e.g., noise exposure) and is used to select laboratory and radiological examinations as well as treatments. Anxiety, depression, and concentration and sleep problems are frequent co morbidities. Thus the clinical history aids the audiologist in understanding the etiology and athorough background of the hearing loss and the hyperacusis.

The following commendations for proposed solution were documented: • Application of the EPFRAT of geri-behavioral population, when it follows appropriate training on completion of the tool and is combined with evidence-based fall prevention interventions, may help reduce the fall rate in the geri-psychiatric in-patient setting.
