Organization context of practice in nursing

This paper will comprehensively analyze the fall prevention program at Oilfields General Hospital in Black Diamond, explaining its relevance, roles and responsibilities of various parties in the program, as well as its strengths and weaknesses. Additionally, the QA/QI models and principles underlying the program will be explicated to ultimately enable the derivation of recommendations on how the program can be improved to take care of the Canadian aging population.
According to Zerwekh and Garneau (2014), fall prevention programs are best suited for the prevention of fall-related deaths and injuries that cost Canada over $3 billion every year.

The hospital outlines that anybody who is over 65 years of age, and experiences falls or is likely to experience a fall, those in a position to walk for 25 metres, and those who can securely take part in a controlled exercise program should participate in the program. After enrolling in the program, individuals are expected to attend exercise and consultation sessions twice a week for a duration of six weeks.

The depression, confusion, grander sequestration, loss of independence, and mobility resulting from falls among the seniors is more devastating, a factor that reiterates
