10:00 AM SHAPING THE FUTURE OF FALL MANAGEMENT: AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO DESIGNING THE NEXT GENERATION OF FALL SAFETY

Each year about 11,000 patients die as a result of their falls. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid have declared falls a “never” event—that is, an event that is preventable and should never occur. In an ideal world, hospitals and senior living communities would eradicate falls. In the real world, falls cannot be fully eliminated, but they can and should be dramatically reduced with an integrated and holistic approach. An approach that starts with a strong fall management culture and supports that culture with people, processes and products all focused on keeping patients and residents safe.
