Evidence-Based Fall Prevention
Summary of course: Falls are a major health risk for our elderly population. One out of every three older Americans falls every year. Falls are a significant source of fractures and soft tissue injury. A fall can happen to anyone at any time. Illness, surgery, weakness, tests, medications, medical equipment, noise and new surroundings can all contribute to a fall at any age. This half-day presentation will help facilities use root cause analysis in the investigation and prevention of resident falls. It will help your facility analyze the internal, external, and systemic conditions and operations that may be the cause of resident falls.
