Rua Safety Goals Guidelines: To Prevent Falls
This brochure describes three strategies that can be used to help prevent falling: talking up with your healthcare providers about fall hazards, setting up an individual plan together with them, and learning how medications affect balance and raise fall risks. The brochure also includes a list of common reasons that can lead to falls, including poor vision or dizziness.
Speak Up seeks to empower patients by providing them tools that they can use when interacting with healthcare professionals. By offering a comprehensive look at various factors that may put someone at greater risk for falling while providing practical tips on how they can mitigate those risks–patients are better able to make informed decisions when discussing their care plans with medical staff.
