Nurses focus on preventing infant drops

AWHONN SmartBrief | Jan 27, 2015

Nearly 300 incidents of infants being dropped, bumped or falling occurred in health care settings over almost 10 years in Pennsylvania, according to a study in the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory. Anywhere from 600 to 1,600 falls are reported nationally, but the numbers tend to be underreproted, said nurse manager Ann Slogar of MetroHealth Medical Center's mother-baby unit in Ohio, the co-author of research on the topic in Nursing for Women's Health. Increased rounds between 3 and 6 a.m. and intervening when mothers seem groggy or have no support person present are strategies used to prevent drops. Philly.com (Philadelphia) (01/17)
