The management of the structure plays an essential part in the management of falls. Discover the Siegrist and Karasek models to avoid a burnout among medical personnel at all costs.
A fall shouldn’t remain between the caregiver and the person on the ground.
In this kind of situation, it’s essential not to feel alone, by sharing your experience and your feelings so that you don’t have to deal with this emotional load alone.
So let’s no langer talk about faults or a lack of responsibility, but about events that bring about experience by focusing on continuing training.
The workload generated by falls contributes to exhausted caregivers
The Siegrist and Karasek models highlight the parameters to reduce the number of falls and to better manage the teams of caregivers
The Siegrist model
Caregivers put effort into their work and in return, they expect this work to provide them with rewards (self-esteem, sense of self-efficacy, etc.).
The objective is therefore to predict the psychological distress and health problems that may arise when there is an imbalance between the efforts required by the work and the recognition received.
The Karasek model
This model predicts that the lack of reciprocity between costs and gains can lead to emotional stress. The questionnaire makes it possible to measure tension (stress) at work by calculating 3 elements:
- Psychological demand
- Decision latitude
- Social support at work
Like Siegrist’s model, Karasek’s model is a great way to support efficiently your team.
The first benefit of a fall detection system such as ISA is that it brings a sense of control over your work.
In addition to being able to intervene more effectively, healthcare staff will be able, thanks to the generated fall registry, to anticipate the risk of falls in order to prevent them from occurring.
Implementing a system like ISA is therefore reassuring and supporting, both for your patients and for your teams.
