Keys to Better Outcomes

Balance and Fall

Fall and injury prevention continues to be a considerable challenge in health care. Up to 32% of community-dwelling individuals over the age of 65 fall each year, and females fall more frequently than males in this age group. Fall-related injuries are the most common cause of accidental death in those over the age of 65, resulting in 41 fall-related deaths per 100,000 people per year.¹ To address this growing concern, the Joint Commission established the Home Care National Patient Safety Goals for 2011, to educate patient and families how to prevent injuries from falling.²
