  Preventive Measures Against Falling

 

(1) If you want to get out of the bed, please sit at your bedside first.  Having made sure of no dizziness, you can ask your family’s caregiver to help you get out of the bed.  If there is no family member being with you, please press “nurse call bell” to ask for care from the nursing staff.

(2) Please keep the small light of the bed inside the room at low dim all through the night.

(3) When the floor is wet, please inform the nursing staff to deal with the wetness.

(4) If the nurse has pulled up the guard rails of bed, the caregiver is requested not to slide them down.  If the patient wants to get out of the bed, please slide down the guard rails first. The patient must under no circumstances cross over the rails and get out of the bed.

(5) The articles, food, cup, urinal pan… that the patient often takes for use should be positioned at the places reachable by the hands of the patient.

(6) When helping the patient with bathing or toileting, make sure that all the articles are well-prepared before accompanying the patient to go into the bathroom or toilet.  To avoid accident, do not let the patient stay at the bathroom or toilet alone.

(7) The patient always feels dizzy or weak when standing up from the water closet after toileting.  The caregiver should keep watching the movements of the patient, and give assistance.

(8) Assist the patient with toileting at about 10:00 p.m. before sleeping, and at about 5:00 a.m. when getting up.

(9) Those physically weak patients are advised to use urinal pan in the bed.

(10) If the caregiver needs to go out, please tell the nursing staff so as for caring the patient more frequently.
