The Resource Fall prevention
- Fall prevention
- Falls are all too common in all healthcare settings. In acute care settings, falls make up about 38% of all adverse events. In patients over 65, there are as many as 1.5 falls per bed annually. Some acute care units such as oncology and geriatrics experience even higher rates of falls. Falls are associated with increased morbidity and mortality, especially for those over 65. The problem has become so serious that the Joint Commission has made reducing the risk of injury from falls one of their National Patient Safety Goals. This three program series on fall prevention is designed to help you and your institution keep patients safe from falls, and meet the Joint Commission's goal and is designated for a minimum of 1.5 hours of continuing nursing education
