 Fall Reduction and Injury Mitigation

Product #1000FALL

A Systematic Approach Balancing Residents’ Safety and Freedom

Ginger Norris, Shane Craycraft, and the OHCA’s Facility Standards Committee/Falls Work Group

This manual was developed with the input and involvement of many LTC professionals. It provides practical strategies that can be adopted to prevent or minimize falls, as well as interventions that can be used to reduce injuries if and when a fall occurs. The manual contains a comprehensive falls management process plus valuable information on restraint and medication factors, resident assessment protocols, and detailed interventions. A number of sample policies, assessment forms, and post-fall investigation forms are also included. This great resource will help position your facility to comply with the new F323 Accidents & Supervision guidance released in 2007.
