That's a great question.
I'm assuming that you already understand how to find CINAHL in the library Research Databases.
I just tried a search for "staff shortage AND patient falls" (here's a link to what I've found: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=rzh&bquery=XX+%26quot%3bshortage%26quot%3b%5b100%5d+AND+(XX+%26quot%3bfalls%26quot%3b%5b95%5d+OR+XX+%26quot%3bstaff%26quot%3b%5b60%5d+OR+XX+%26quot%3bpatient%26quot%3b%5b43%5d)&type=0&site=ehost-live), and a whole bunch of articles came up.
Also, if you're not finding enough articles, try some different keywords that mean the same thing. For example, instead of saying "patient falls" try "accidental falls"
We may not have each and every article in Full Text immediately available for you to look at. But you can submit an Interlibrary Loan for any articles that you really want, and they should be sent to your email address as a PDF attachment really quickly.
Also, are you ONLY allowed to use CINAHL? There are other databases that may provide even more articles on this topic. If you're interested, check out: Health Reference Center Academic, Health Source: Nursing/Academic Edition, MEDLINE with Full Text, Nursing Reference Center, and STAT!Ref.
