Gait and balance information.-rationale: assessing the clients gait and balance helps determine his risk of falls. the facilitys policy on restraints isnt relevant to a risk assessment for falls. assessing the familys psychosocial history and the clients dietary preferences are important but not as important as gait and balance in relation to the risk of falls.client needs category: safe, effective care environmentclient needs subcategory: safety and infection controlcognitive level: analysisreference: taylor, c., et al. fundamentals of nursing: the art and science of nursing care, 6th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2008, p. 678.
