Falls Prevention with Alerta Falls Prevention Products

AlertaMats in Care for the Elderly People

Accidental falls, slips, trips and tumbles are common in older people. In people 65 years and older, falls are the most common reason for hospitalisation and loss of independence. As many as 1 in 3 older people fall every year, leading to a variety of different fall related injuries. Injuries commonly arising from falling include hip fractures, broken wrists, dislocated shoulders and head injuries as well as lacerations, bruises and sprains.

Falls occur day and night, outdoors and indoors, in private homes and in care institutions, such as residential and nursing homes and hospitals. Many falls can be prevented through implementation of safety measures applicable to specific environments.   

Falls have profound and devastating effects on older people’s lives and sustaining one fall frequently heralds a real possibility of more falls to come. Implementing effective falls prevention measures should therefore be a priority in all environments and especially in care environments, such as hospitals and nursing homes.
