Falls are an important patient safety and risk management issue. They are the number one hospital acquired condition. Patient death or serious injury associated with a fall is also one of the 29 National Quality Forum Never Events in which some states have agreed not to bill. Also, falls can result in the filing of a medical malpractice case. Every hospital should consider having a falls team to look at this important patient safety issue. Preventing falls among patients requires a multifaceted approach and fall prevention is a crucial topic for today's aging population. This program discusses how to comply with the Joint Commission and the CMS hospital CoP standards on falls.
