Abstract: 

This 45 minute Power Point presentation is designed to provide trainees and practicing hospitalists with an approach to the evaluation of hospitalized patients who fall. It was originally developed to provide advice to interns and residents at the University of New Mexico upon implementation of our hospital’s multidisciplinary falls prevention program.  It is case-based, includes a brief review of the evidenced-based literature, and then gives the authors’ opinions about how best to approach this situation. Also included is a list of pertinent literature and a multidisciplinary checklist, developed by the authors and used at the University of New Mexico Hospital.

Educational objectives: 

1. Identify at least 3 factors that are epidemiologically associated with falls in the elderly.

2. State the most common etiology of falling in the elderly.

3. Summarize the epidemiology of in-patient falls.

4. Describe the three steps in evaluating the in-patient who  falls

5. Demonstrate an appropriate bedside evaluation for injury of an in-patient who has fallen. 

6. Demonstrate how a multi-disciplinary team can use a checklist to evaluate and manage a hospitalized patient who has fallen.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This presentation was specifically designed for the in-patient hospital setting. The authors do not advocate using this approach in other settings (such as emergency departments, skilled nursing facilities, or nursing homes). Many of the recommendations are based on the authors’ opinions as there is little-evidenced based literature in this area. The authors are formally studying the clinical usefulness of the checklist, and are especially interested in comments, critical appraisals, and similar experience of others.

Abstract: 

Using the Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders (or ACOVE) paradigm and the principles of Academic Detailing, Aging Q3 is developing curriculum on 16 different topics for teaching residents about providing quality care to elderly patients.  Aging Q3 uses a sequence of multiple interventions where residents learn and experience the practice of Geriatrics in the clinical setting with limited interruption to the process of patient care.  Each ACOVE is featured for 3 months.  The curriculum includes a resident lecture during one of the residents scheduled noon conferences, a handout used by the faculty to detail the resident on the issue during precepting, a poster which is displayed strategically in resident areas, and observed demonstration of a defined skill.  Residents are "cued" to address the featured issue with their elder patients by a "Blue Sheet" which contains a few brief questions on the ACOVE topic that the Patient Care Technician or Nurse have discussed with the patient during intake.  Residents are assessed pre and post on knowledge, skill, and attitude by a Survey Monkey questionnaire.

The Continuity of Care "ACOVE" is number 4 of 16 different curriculum being developed in Aging Q3.

Educational objectives: 

1. Conduct an outpatient medication reconcilliation.

2. Demonstrate using Practice Partner (EMR) as a tool to communicate between doctors.

3. Perform timely follow up with patient in clinic after hospital discharge.

4. Identify and document patient's current primary care physician in EMR.
