After discussion with your mentor, name one financial aspect, one quality aspect, and one clinical aspect that need to be taken into account for developing the evidence-based practice project. Explain how your proposal will directly and indirectly impact each of the aspects. My EBP has to do with falls and trying to cut back on the falls. At my current hospital and others I have worked at the fall risk assessment is usually only 4-5 questions. That being said the assessment isn’t enough to determine a person’s fall risk. The number one factor in falls is age and once a person gets to 65 the risk of falls triples. The age of a person should be one of the main factors. When I talked to my mentor about this we figured the big issue is probably the financial side of things. It will cost to get this in motion because we have to educate staff and make a new fall risk assessment. But, if we can show them how much they could save by cutting back on falls it will be worth it in the long run. Just one fall with a fracture could cost over $20,000 in surgery and hospital stay cost. The quality aspect that we talked about is the safety of the patients. If we can prevent one fall it would be worth it. Patient safety is the main thing we go to work for so if we can spend 2 more minutes doing a fall risk assessment that could prevent falls in the future then I’ll do it. The main clinical aspect that we discussed was having the other nurses get on board and be willing to spend that extra time to assess the patients. We just have to show them that it might take 2 extra minutes but it can save them hours in the long run in paper work if they do have a fall.
