How to prevent falls in healthcare facilities is a key question caregivers are asking to in an effort reduce hospital readmissions.Posted by Nurse Assist on Jun 20, 2018 | 0 comments
Since falls are cited by hospital admissions administrators as the number one reason for readmission, this critical concern merits more attention for you and your loved one. According to AARP, “One third of adults 65 and older fall once a year.” That is a number we would like to see drastically reduced.
One of Nurse Assist’s founding products, the “Fall Watch,” has been an industry leader in doing just that. We found that preventing vs. reacting has been the difference maker. The Fall Watch II is a straight forward design that uses wireless digital technology to alert when a patient is starting to position themselves to get out of bed. It works independently from the normal nurse call system; however, it can work in conjunction with it too, if desired.
