Falls

Falls remain a common cause of harm to patients in acute hospitals with as many as 250,000 falls recorded in the UK each year. 

Many factors contribute to the risk of falls in acute wards. A combination of processes which include risk assessment falls bundles, review of local environment and the use of safety crosses help to understand and communicate data which contributes to a measurable reduction in harm.
