Norman Regional system trying to eliminate falls

(Continued)

MOORE —

If a fall, with or without injury, does occur, McKinney said a falls committee meets to discuss what happened and how they can improve for the future.

Fall or no fall, McKinney said the entire Norman Regional staff is working on making patients’ hospital stays as safe as possible.

“The more we’re checking on them, the more we reinforce the things they have to do to call for help, the more we’re by their side when they’re moving about the room, the less chance we have of someone really injuring themselves,” she said.
