National Patient Safety Foundation Awards Research Grant for Innovative Project Investigating Environmental Factors Involved in Patient Falls
Date:8/20/2013

tors joins me in congratulating Dr. Pati,” said Tejal K. Gandhi, MD, MPH, president of NPSF. “Patient falls are a serious and long-standing problem in health care, and this work promises to provide much-needed insight into environmental contributors and potential prevention strategies.”

The research team will work with international health care design firm, HKS, Inc. The HKS architectural team will design room mock-ups that will incorporate the latest patient care protocol and technology while adhering to current design and construction codes and guidelines.

According to Tom Harvey, FAIA, MPH, FACHA, LEED AP, principal with HKS, until researchers understand which elements of the physical environment have an impact on falls and why, design teams cannot be truly evidence-informed in their designs. “By partnering in this project we hope to engage in meaningful research that advances the industry and builds the much needed evidence base around this critical subject.”

The grant is awarded through the NPSF Research Grants Program, which promotes studies leading to the prevention of human errors, system errors, patient injuries, and their consequences, and which is supported in part by the members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Dr. Pati’s project was selected from 87 submissions reviewed by an independent expert committee. The 11-member committee was chaired by Bruce Lambert, PhD, professor of Pharmacy Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Since 1998, NPSF has supported 39 research projects with more than $3.8 million in grant funding. For a compendium of research supported by the NPSF Research Grants Program, see the 2012 Research Program Summary of Progress report.
