About

There is a risk of falls and injuries in bedridden hospitalized patients, increased in agitated or confused patients. In neurosurgery departments, brain damaged patients can present a loss of consciousness of risky behaviors and be in a state of agitation which frequently leads to their endangerment. The repercussions of this endangerment are multiple. For the patients, there may be a feeling of insecurity, with physical or chemical restraint solutions which deprive them of their freedom without a total guarantee of safety. For the caregivers, there is an emotional distress in front of this endangerment, and a professional guilt. Finally, there are economic repercussions due to the costs of complementary examinations and the lengthening of hospitalization. The objective of the present study is to determine the nature and frequency of occurrence of risk behaviours, through the observation of bedridden and agitated hospitalized patients. These risk behaviours are defined as potentially dangerous and are warning signs for the caregiver. A better understanding of these behaviours could help to better anticipate falls and injuries and to implement preventive measures more quickly.
