A fall can be life-changing.
‘The world’s population is ageing. Falls and related injuries are increasingly common, making their prevention and management a critical global challenge.’ ¹
Today, there are over 400 different risk factors that can lead to a fall, so there is no single intervention that works in isolation to prevent one. However, education and awareness are critical to the success of any falls prevention programme.
For this reason, Medline has put together a number of educational resources to guide you. We offer practical tips and recommendations to help prevent falls in your hospital. We also provide a solution that includes a wide spectrum of high-quality products and a unique falls management programme to help drive best practices.
