Abstract :

The incidence of falls in the 65 and older hospitalized patients are a global concern to healthcare professionals. The increase in injuries related to in-hospital falls has increased in number and cost. Patient falls remain a concern to the healthcare community and especially in the acute care hospitals. It is also one of the most challenging patient safety concerns for hospitalized patients 65 and older. The purpose of this project is to identify the reasons for patient falls and the need for innovations to reduce the incidence of falls for the 65 and older hospitalized patients. This project will focus on the implementation of preventative measures to decrease in hospital falls for the elderly.
