Description

Health care providers can help reduce patient's chances of falling and of suffering serious injuries like hip fractures and traumatic brain damage. Every day, in nursing homes located throughout the United States, hundreds of residents will experience one or more falls. Prevention of falls, whether causing injury or not, is a key safety issue in health care settings.

The interest in fall prevention has flourished and, as a result, our thinking about falls has dramatically changed. We now have a better understanding of why falls occur and, more importantly, what can be done to prevent falls from happening. As health care providers, we have a responsibility to promote the safety of our patients, residents, or clients. This means learning how to care for people that carry an increase risk of falls.

Objectives

Upon completion of the course, the participant should be able to:
1.Identify confusion disorders.
2.Recognize and identify signs of fall risk.
3.List hazards of fall risks.
4.Identify safety tips for fall prevention.
