Slide 1:
Title: Impact of Hourly Rounding on Fall Prevention in Elderly Patients
Slide 2:
Background: Falls are a leading cause of injury for older adults, resulting in increased healthcare costs and decreased quality of life (CDC, 2022). Hospitals seek fall prevention strategies to improve patient outcomes. Hourly rounding, in which nurses check on patients every hour, has emerged as a potential solution (Spano-Szekely et al., 2019).
Slide 3:
Methodology: A randomized controlled trial of 542 patients aged 65 and older on medical-surgical units compared hourly rounding to standard care (Dykes et al., 2017). Nurses conducted assessments, addressed needs, and informed patients of next checks during rounds. Falls were recorded.
Slide 4:

Results: Hourly rounding significantly reduced falls compared to standard care, with a fall rate of 1.68 vs 3.13 per 1000 patient days (p = 0.04; Dykes et al., 2017). No significant differences in patient satisfaction emerged (Dykes et al., 2017).
Slide 5:
Discussion: Findings align with previous research showing hourly rounding reduces falls (Spano-Szekely et al., 2019). However, sample only included medical-surgical patients. Effects on other units require exploration (Dykes et al., 2017).
Slide 6:
Practical Implications: Hospitals should implement multifactorial fall bundles including hourly rounding shown to safely and cost-effectively cut falls (Cameron et al., 2018). Training nurses on consistent rounding protocols facilitates success (Spano-Szekely et al., 2019).
Slide 7:
Recommendations: Hospitals must prioritize fall prevention to improve patient outcomes and lower costs (CDC, 2022). Transitioning to hourly rounding presents a high-impact and evidence-based solution (Dykes et al., 2017; Spano-Szekely et al., 2019). Further research can expand understanding.
Slide 8:

Conclusion: This presentation reviewed evidence that hourly rounding reduces falls in elderly medical-surgical patients compared to standard care, offering hospitals an effective fall prevention strategy (Dykes et al., 2017).
