Falls and fall-related injuries are important patient safety and risk management issues for all hospitals. Patient falls are the leading cause of injury related deaths for patients over 65 years of age and the number one hospital-acquired condition, costing hospitals $30,000 per fall-related injury. Every hospital should have a falls team to minimize this adverse event.
In this program, our expert will use evidence-based literatures to discuss fall prevention and explain why it requires a multifaceted approach to address the issue.
