Patient falls are among the most common occurrences reported in hospitals and are a leading cause of death in people ages 65 or older. Of those who fall, as many as half may suffer moderate to severe injuries that reduce mobility and independence, and increase the risk of premature death. About 50 percent of older adults hospitalized for hip fracture never regain their previous level of function.
The pressure to accelerate fall prevention intensified when The Joint Commission began adding National Patient Safety Goals (NPSG) and Requirements for hospitals and other settings these touched on preventing falls. In 2005, the NPSG stated: “Reduce the risk of patient harm resulting from falls and the specific requirement: Assess and periodically reassess each patient’s risk for falling, including the potential risk associated with the patient’s medication regimen, and take action to address any identified risks.”
The current National Patient Safety Goals include reducing falls and prevention of harm from falls. http://www.ihi.org/IHI/Topics/PatientSafety/ReducingHarmfromFalls/
