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;
(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;
(10) Visual impairment.
