The prevention of falls in a geriatric hospital

, : The prevention of falls in a geriatric hospital. Age & Ageing 9(3): 181-185

All falls which occurred in a geriatric hospital in 1 yr were carefully recorded by nursing staff. Falls occurred most often in admission wards, less in rehabilitation wards and even less in long-stay wards. The incidence of falls was lower when patients were confined to bed as a result of industrial action by staff. Very few falls resulted in bone injury. The completion of accident reports by nurses after noninjurious falls is unproductive.
