A nursing home facility must identify each resident at risk of accidents and provide supervision and assistance devices to prevent accident. These include a thorough intake review of the resident’s pre-existing admission records. Those records are to be examined for the following existing risk factors:

(1) Previous falls;

(2) Cardiac arrhythmias;

(3) Stroke;

(4) Central nervous system disorder such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, dementia and others;

(5) Problems with mobility and gait;

(6) Low blood pressure on standing up;

(7) Bowel or bladder incontinence;

(8) Dizziness;

(9) Dehydration;

(10) Visual impairment.
