Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In medical scene, the fall accident of patients is one of the accidents that occur frequently. So, to evaluate the fall risk of patients is realistic to reduce fall accidents in medical scene. But, the majority of hospitals don't define the procedure to evaluate patient's fall risk conside1ing a characteristic of each hospital. Therefore we propose the advanced method of evaluating fall risk using FRAS table to restrain fall accidents. By using this method, each hospital can lead patient's fall risk. So, we discuss the realistic how to use the information of fall risk with risk managers. And, we propose the method of concentrating the conscious for the patients classifying as high fall risk, and contribute to reducing the rate of fall accidents.
