Abstract This article analyzes the costs and benefits of a patient-sitter program in relation to patient falls and patient satisfaction. During these days of intense budgetary scrutiny, it is necessary to integrate methods of cost/benefit analysis into our loss prevention management programs, whether physical loss or loss patient base due to dissatisfied patients. This article presents the research we have conducted to analyze costs and benefits of our patient-sitter program in relation to patient falls and patient satisfaction.
