Abstract

Hairon, N. (2007) Using a range of interventions to prevent falls in hospital. Nursing Times; 103: 9, 23-24.

The National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) has published a report this week on falls in hospital, which suggests that a range of interventions, when used together, could result in an 18% reduction in the number of falls. This article outlines the incidence and cost of falls in hospital and how nurses can help with falls prevention.
