Falls among older patients and other at-risk patients are very common. In fact, as many as 75% of all residents fall every year in nursing care, and in acute care, falls make up about 38% of all adverse events. This program on fall prevention can help you and your institution meet the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goals. The program will cover the importance of making a risk assessment for each person in care, and a risk assessment of the environment at the facility. It will also cover a wide variety of preventative strategies and products for reducing the risk of injury from falls, and describe setting up a comprehensive fall prevention program in your facility.
