Inside best practice: Reduce patient falls with a stoplight

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, September 23, 2008

For example, consider implementing a stoplight system. This involves posting a picture of a stoplight in a patient’s room with a red, yellow, or green light.
