Prevention of falls should be the focus of your facility. Two-thirds of seniors who have fallen will have a repeat fall within six months. The focus of preventive action needs to be centred on awareness of conditions that predispose a person to fall. This programme provides practical guidelines to identify risks; the use of gait belts; the importance of proper footwear; techniques for various types of patient transfer and assisted devices and equipment.
