I have accepted the position of fall coordinator for my facility covering, med/surg, ICU and ER. Has anyone on this forum ever filled such a position if so will you share you experience with me so I can kinda know what to expect. It is a brand new position here so I kinda get to define the role. I want to be able to provide education to patient and staff. I know that I will audit all falls and intend to do rounding to see if all fall precautions are being met for the high fall risk patients as well as educate those patients on the reasons for the precautions. I just know that I need some perspective on what expect for the role.
