Abstract

Sutton D et al (2014) A care bundle approach to falls prevention. Nursing Times; 110, 20, 21-23.

Falls cause harm and distress to NHS inpatients every year. One hospital's implementation of a regional FallSafe project has increased the use of evidencebased measures to prevent falls. The project relied on a network of falls champions, who were nurses or healthcare assistants who taught and inspired their colleagues to implement care bundles.
