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.

After the first evaluation, all participants were evaluated every week using the same instrument.

How to try this: Support Center Support Center. InCaldevilla et al. Therefore, clinically nurses should adopt them based on the features and requirements of the elderly patients. In order to assuring their consistency of the understanding and implementing about the items of scales and modle test methods, and avoiding errors between various testers occurred in test, these two testers received unified training, 30 min before testing patients, which was to introduce the application aim and meaning of the rating scales, test methods and requirement of filling, and to discuss and analyze the divergence of rating scales application, finally, reach an agreement.

Only one patient modsl leg bruising; there was no injury in the remaining 31 participants. Content validity was excellent, with a content validity ratio of 0. At present, many scholars of domestic and overseas devote themselves to the exploitation of fall assessment tools, and have developed various tools to assess the risk factors of rism elderly fall.

Stratify, Hendrich II Fall Risk Model and Morse Fall Scale have higher sensibility and specificity irsk predicting the fall risk of patients, and high correlativity, but various emphasis points.


S1 Questionnaire Questionnaire in Chinese version. Introduction Falls are described as any sudden, iu and unintentional occurrence resulting in a patient landing on the ground or at lower level [ 1 ]. Consecutive patients were selected to represent the Chinese elder inpatients population.

Hendrich II fall risk model: Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. The panel group also evaluated the content validity of HFRM.

The intra-class correlation coefficient was 0. Preventing fall is the key to decrease osteoporotic fracture and other relevant impairments in the elderly, and to identify and evaluate the fall risk of them is an antecedent to prevent and interfere it effectively.

However, due to its fall risk factors of assessment, such henrdich consciousness, gait, history of falling and vision, it is recommended to be selected for the assessment of the elderly population who are older and frail, and have unstable gait and poor vision. Secondly, a too short test-retest interval might increase the test-retest reliability measures.

Int J Nurs Stud. The Chinese hendricj of the HFRM showed good reliability and validity in assessing the risk of fall in Chinese elderly inpatients. Falls occurred for32 participants during hospitalization.


Age ranged from 60 to 92 years, for a hrndrich of In order to avoid mistakes caused by poor memory or cognition of the elderly people, their family members were allowed to answer questions.

Hospital medical workers have no time to lose in using long and complicated scales [ 12 ]. There is no complete system or tool to assess, prevent and intervene falls in China [ 11 ].

Two researchers evaluated the same subjects independently. In China, patient falls prevention is also considered as a hendrcih component of hospital patient safety management.

Some test content of Stratify and MFS, such as history of falling and over one underling diseases, need be recalled by patients. Assessing patients in a neurology practice for risk of falls an evidence-based review: After obtaining the consent of the author Dr. InNassar et al.


And the correlativity among the rating scales was 0. The present study was approved by the ethical committee of the Peking Union Medical College Hospital. However, they suggested modifying some language expressions to make the scale more concise and easier to understand. Data Availability All relevant data are within the paper and its Supporting Information files.

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.

The Eigenvalues of the three components were 1. Intraclass correlation coefficient ICC was used to assess the test-retest and inter-rater reliability. In conclusion, the Chinese version of the HFRM had good reliability and validity in assessing the fall risk of elderly inpatients.

The epidemiologic data on falls, — Now there are over ten scales used for the evaluation of fall risk in the elderly, among them, about Stratify, Hendrich II Fall Risk Model and Morse Fall Scale, there are more and more mature researches [ 5 ].

Researchers with a special training for using the Chinese version of the Il tool evaluated the risk of falling of all participants within 24 hours after hospitalization. The items and grading standards are following: Fzll instrument consists of eight variables: Therefore, tools are necessary to assess the risk of falls to improve the safety of patients in the hospital.

Results Characteristics of the subjects A total of subjects were enrolled in this study male and female.
