Fall Prevention Program
Safety is a top Priority
We have created a multifaceted approach to reduce the risk of falling among residents. Our best approach for fall preventions consists of identifying residents at risk, communicating risks with all staff, and targeting interventions aimed at reducing the risk. Monitoring the effect of interventions with continued practice.
We take additional steps to implement fall prevention by providing each resident with an alert pendant that notifies staff in the event of an emergency and/or to request an immediate need for assistance.
The prevention of falls is enhanced greatly through educational activities provided to staff and residents by the Registered Nurse.
