One organization assessed the association between increased caregiver hours per patient-day and a reduction in inpatient falls by adding a new role for a patient safety officer. Although the role was statistically significant in reducing patient falls by 50% on the intervention unit, fall reductions were not statistically significant when compared with the control unit.
