What to STOP Doing to START Improving Fall Injuries
The Health Research & Educational Trust (HRET), through their two-year Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN) contract through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, has created a myth-busting strategy guide to help improve fall injuries in hospitals. Notably, as researched by HELP's own Dr. Sharon K. Inouye, delirium is the leading contributor to hospital falls, and identification of these and other risk factors can help hospital staff implement appropriate interventions for at-risk patients. HRET HIIN recommends mobilizing a patient to their highest ability level three times per day - see more on this and other ways to START improving fall injuries in the link below.
