Preventing the Tragedy of In-Hospital Newborn Infant Falls

In-hospital newborn infant falls are one of the most underreported issues for healthcare organizations that provide perinatal and newborn care. Many of these falls result in injury or even death of the newborn, medical-legal issues for the organization, and severe emotional stress  to the caregiver(s) and parents.


This webinar will examine the underreported incidence of newborn falls in the hospital setting, and the factors during hospitalization that increase the risk of a newborn infant fall. Ms. McBroom will review the spectrum of associated risk management concerns, describe potential organizational risk management interventions, and provide tools/resources to assist in the prevention of newborn infant falls.
