Prevention of Injury From Falls


fallWhat combination of fall prevention interventions are most effective at preventing injuries due to falls?

Patient falls and subsequent injury is a vast patient safety topic that continues to plague us. Would you like to help find an answer to this question? Join our group of Missouri hospitals who have committed to exploring this topic with a “researcher’s hat.” This group plans to submit their patient falls data, beyond the requirements of the MO HealthNet regulation, to the PSO for aggregate analysis, group discussion, and learning together. Contact Carol Hafley at the Center for more information.
