This case involves an elderly male patient with a past medical history of Stage 4 Myeloma. He was admitted to the hospital in Mississippi due to deterioration of his condition as well as general confusion. As a result of his age and confusion, the patient was assessed as a fall risk. Fall precautions included appropriate lighting, appropriate sized clothing at time of ambulation, assessment of elimination needs, assistance when needed, bed alert on, bed low and locked, night light, non-slip footwear, call light within reach, and the floor allegedly free of obstacles. Three weeks later, the patient got up out of his bed in the hospital to go to the restroom. On his way to the restroom, he tripped over a bedside commode and fell to the floor, sustaining fractures to his clavicle and humerus, as well as a laceration above one eye. After his hospital stay was extended due to the injuries, he was transferred to hospice, where he later passed away due to complications from his cancer.
