Abstract

Nursing staff rated having a folding commode chair in each patient room bathroom, on a scale of 1 (not highly rated) to 10 (very highly rated), as being useful (mean = 8.56), feasible/practical (mean = 8.15), and appropriate (mean = 8.55). Providing a commode chair in each bathroom as an intervention in a multifaceted fall-prevention program is recommended to increase accessibility and efficiency in patient care delivery.
