Inpatient Nurses - 'Post Fall Reassessment' row added to Post Fall Flowsheet

Patients who have fallen should be reassessed for injury at 24 hours post fall. The “Post Fall Reassessment” row has been added to the Post Fall Flowsheet for that purpose.

Note the following:

  • When the fall is documented, a reminder task will appear on the worklist for the shift in which the reassessment is due, 24 hours after the fall was documented.  
  • After 24 hours it will show in the worklist as overdue.  Please document as close to 24 hours post fall as possible.  
  • Documentation in the “Post Fall Reassessment” row should be in a new column for the time of the reassessment – not in the same date/time column for the fall.
