Fall Prevention

Medical professionals play a critical role in identifying persons at risk for falls.  However, despite general knowledge of fall prevention protocols, falls continue to occur, and adults aged 65 and older are the highest risk.  Physicians and nurses have an opportunity to identify the risk factors associated with falling and implement preventative methods to educate patients, families, and caregivers.
