Changes As of December 31, 2019

Please note that grant number R18HS025128 from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality project will be ending on December 31, 2019. At this time, the REDCap links used to submit Fall TIPS audits will be deactivated for all non-Partners Hospitals.
We encourage hospitals that are members of the Fall TIPS Collaborative to use the REDCap Fall TIPS Audits form as a template for creating a similar form and that you continue to collect audits.

PHS (excluding MGH) Hospitals: Submit a Fall TIPS Audit (click here)

If you are a Fall TIPS Champion at MGH, please submit your audits HERE

The audit questions are as follows:

  1. Is the patient’s Fall TIPS poster updated and hanging at the bedside?
  2. Can the patient/family verbalize the patient’s fall risk factors?
  3. Can the patient/family verbalize the patient’s personalized fall prevention plan?
  4. If you answered “No” to any question, did you provide peer-to-peer feedback?

Remember to choose patients that are alert and oriented and have been in the hospital for at least 1 day. It also helps if a family member is present and can speak on behalf of patients who are not alert/oriented.
