Be Sure Your Facility Uses a Fall-Risk Medication Assessment

Up to 50% of falls in the hospital lead to injury.

These injuries are linked to patients spending an additional 6 days in the hospital...and increase costs by about $14,000 per fall.

Expect your hospital to use a fall-risk assessment tool, such as the Morse Fall Scale. This can help identify at-risk patients, such as those with a history of a fall, impaired vision, confusion, or IV lines.
