Abstract

This exploratory study identified the extrinsic risk factors for inpatient falls in hospital rooms both from incident reports and from nurse and nursing attendant interviews. An attributional theory of success and failure was adopted, and a proposed typology was used to elicit data, including 3 dimensions as follows: (a) patient room setting and design, (b) hospital equipment, and (c) manpower concerns.
