Falls in LTC settings continue to be problematic and costly. Understanding causes of falls (intrinsic and extrinsic) and methods of prevention is important in decreasing the number of falls for senior living professionals. In this session, the participant will be introduced to the background and scope of falls in senior living. Falls generally happen because of various and diverse risk factors and situations, many of which can be corrected. These risk factors are influenced by age, disease, and the presence of hazards in the environment. Several studies have shown that the risk of falling increases dramatically as the number of risk factors increases. The information within the presentation will allow the learners to identify ways for the multidisciplinary team to work together to assess, choose and implement fall prevention programs that are compatible with your community. Principles of effective documentation for nursing to support delivered fall prevention services as well as ways to evaluate the effectiveness of a fall prevention program will be shared.
