SUMMARY..

The article entitled An interdisciplinary momentary confluence of


events model to explain, minimize, and prevent pediatric patient falls and
fall-related injuries was conducted on January 2013. The researchers offer
an interdisciplinary pediatric fall and injury prevention model to direct future
research toward interventions to avoid or lessen pediatric patient falls and
injuries.
The unique characteristics of their model created from a wide review of
adverse event reports and medical records from over 400 pediatric patients
who fell in the hospitals.
They recommend that the most basic and essential intrinsic factors
that determine when a child will fall and the severity of injury are child
human factors, environmental human factors, and biomechanical factors.
Extrinsic factors that contribute to the likelihood of a fall and injury are
parent human factors, hospital caregiver human factors, and visible and
latent system factors. They added biomechanical factors to better
understand the mechanisms of falls and injury due to falls, and parent
human factors to the model because parents are present during the majority
of pediatric patient falls. The complicated complexity of a pediatric fall event
requires an interdisciplinary team who share their unique knowledge,
research methods, and interpretive perspectives to solve this clinical
problem with a new, bold, and improved view.
When there is evidence that a childs head was struck during a fall, this
detailed information is useful to predict the severity of the impact and
concussion potential. Focused interdisciplinary research based on this new
model may reveal common patterns of relationships among components of
the model that are amenable to change.

REFELECTION..
As our group is assign in the pediatric ward, I chose this journal
because it reflects on how we are going to care our clients especially their
safeness in their own rooms. The researchers of this article offer an
interdisciplinary pediatric fall and injury prevention model to direct future
research toward interventions to avoid or lessen pediatric patient falls and
injuries. This will help not only us as student nurses but also the other

facilities of the hospital we are assigned in. also, this proof may be useful to
develop and test new interventions to decrease pediatric patient falls, and to
prevent or minimize injuries when hospitalized children do fall.
