According to the CDC, over 800,000 patients are hospitalized because of a fall injury each year, most frequently due to a head injury or hip fracture, while 3 million older people are treated in emergency rooms for fall injuries. At least 300,000 elderly patients are admitted to hospitals with hip fractures every year.
Given such an alarming number, it has become a requirement for care providers to explore evidence-based programs that can help older adults reduce their risk of falling. If implemented accordingly, this can contribute to benefits for an individual’s health and a return on investment in preventing illness and injury.
