Developing an evaluation plan is a fundamental part of EBP to find out the achievements, and the reason for the evaluation is to assess the impact of the recommend the program and to determine effectiveness of the research finding in the inpatient hospital settings (Melnyk & Finout-Overholt, 2015). The rationale of the evaluation is to find out the success of the plan, and validate the desired outcome. The effectiveness of the new falls prevention program can be evaluated by first, count the number of falls and the number of occupied bed days on a pilot unit over a three months period of time. To be able to count falls properly, people in the unit need to agree on what counts as a “fall” (AHRQ, 2021). We then examine our rates every month and look at the trend over time. Input the following information: How are they changing? Are they improving or getting worse? Can we relate changes in the fall rate to changes in practice? (AHRQ, 2021). A g-chart will be used in order to measure data scientifically. This is a chart for attributes data. It is used to count the number of events between rarely-occurring errors or nonconforming incidents. The g-chart creates a picture of a process over time. Each point represents the number of units between occurrences of a fall event. The g-chart will be used to see if the process is stable and how the interventions have affected the fall events.
