Patient Falls Reduction Toolkit
This toolkit will assist you with improving organization awareness and developing a response to patient falls, including education, prevention, assessment, reassessment, intervention and continuous improvement. The toolkit will help you develop a patient fall policy, protocol for patients at risk for falls, a review and database focused on patient falls, and it explains how to teach patients and family about fall prevention.
