This resource outlines the Hendrich II Fall Risk Model TM and explains why its use in acute care is a best practice approach to identifying adults at risk for falls. TARGET POPULATION: The Hendrich II Fall Risk Model is intended to be used in the acute care setting to identify adults at risk for falls. The Model is being. To translate, validate and examine the reliability and validity of a Chinese version of the Hendrich II Fall risk Model (HFRM) in predicting falls in.

HFRM has been adapted to different cultures in the world. And the correlativity among the rating scales was 0. Stratify is applied for the elderly patients in this study, with a better discrimination validity between the fall patients and non-fall patients, it can assess the fall risk of patients effectively.
The Chinese version of the HFRM showed good reliability and validity in assessing the risk of fall in Chinese elderly inpatients. After obtaining the consent of the author Dr. Relationship between occurrence of falls and fall-risk scores in an acute care setting using the Hendrich Falk fall risk model. Some modep content of Stratify and MFS, such as history of falling and over one underling diseases, need be recalled by patients.
A fall refers to a falling down on the ground or on a lower level without intention, but does not include those caused by violence, loss of consciousness, hemiplegia, or seizure. Assessing patients in a neurology practice for risk of falls an evidence-based review: Systematic review of fall risk screening tools for older patients in acute hospitals.
Therefore, foreign experts suggest that Stratify can be regarded as a simple testing method for basic movement ability of elderly population [ 78 ]. Defining the Problem and Identifying Possible Solutions.
Therefore, early assessment and identification of risk factors is an effective premise to prevention. InCaldevilla et al. Receiver operating characteristic ROC curves were created to determine the sensitivity and specificity.
Published online Nov 6. Consecutive patients were selected to represent the Chinese elder inpatients population.
The shortest hospitalization hendrichh 4 days, and the longest was 80 days mean of In this study, both testers were registered rehabilitation therapists in rehabilitation medical department of our hospital.
Patients at high risk of falls can be effectively identified using appropriate predictive tools [ 7 ]. Age ranged from 60 to 92 years, for a mean of Now there are over ten scales used for the evaluation of fall risk in the elderly, among henfrich, about Stratify, Hendrich II Fall Risk Model and Morse Fall Scale, there are more and more mature researches [ 5 ]. This was a cross-sectional study performed from August to July Secondly, a too short test-retest interval might increase the test-retest reliability measures.
And the patient who has two risk factors of fall mentioned above belongs to the high risk group of falling. A total of subjects were enrolled in this study male and female.
Hendrich II Fall : FUNDAMENTALS OF NURSING:
The elderly has high risk in fall, and almost half of the elder people who are over 60 years old have falling experience. The present study is not without limitations.
The reliability of the Chinese version of the HFRM was determined using the internal consistency and test-rested methods. After the first evaluation, all participants omdel evaluated every week using the same instrument. It was developed by Morse, the professor of university of Pennsylvania, America, inwhich has six items in total.
But there are few reports about the studies of MFS in Chinese elderly population. Firstly, all patients must write informed consent.
Therefore, tools are necessary to assess the risk of falls to improve the safety of patients in the hospital. S1 Questionnaire Questionnaire in Chinese version.
Open in a separate window. Even though many scholars tried to develop various fall risk assessment tools for different people, none of them with a recognized reliability and validity and better predictive ability is suitable for all types of people [ 6 ]. There are dozens of fall related assessment tools, but lack of reliability and validity of studies, so they cannot be generalized.
The aim of the present study was to translate, validate and examine the reliability and validity of a Chinese version of the Hendrich II Fall risk Model HFRM in predicting patient falls.
Hendrich II Fall Risk Model |
Patients were eligible for the study if they were over 60 years old and had no consciousness disorders, and if they could walk by themselves or assistive devices, and if they had no severe physiological defect or organic diseases and understanding or communication disorders. After that, the test started officially. The area under the curve AUC was 0. January 31, Visit for more related articles at Biomedical Research.
The epidemiologic data on falls, afll The test-retest reliability, inter-rater reliability and internal consistency reliability were assessed. A convenience sample of participants from the original was recruited in order to determine the test-retest and inter-rater reliability. Researchers with a special training for using the Chinese version of the HFRM tool evaluated the risk of falling of all hendricy within 24 hours after hospitalization.
In order to assuring their consistency of the understanding and implementing about the items of scales and the test methods, and avoiding errors between various testers occurred in test, these two testers received unified fakl, 30 min before testing patients, which was to introduce the application aim and meaning of the rating scales, test modeel and requirement of ij, and to discuss and analyze the divergence of rating scales application, finally, reach an agreement.
From October to December,a total of elderly inpatients in the nendrich hospital of Qingdao university were selected. Finally, although this Chinese version of the HFRM showed good reliability and validity in assessing the fall risk of elderly inpatients, other scale translated in Chinese may also be good. The optimal cut-off score for screening at risk patients was 5 with an area under the ROC curve of 0.
Funding Statement The authors have no support or funding to report. This tool was developed specifically for the risk assessment of patient falls in hospital and the scale needs only 3—5 minutes to complete [ 9 ]. Predictive validity of the Hendrich fall risk model II in an acute geriatric unit.
