Falls, and injuries from falls, are common among older adults and they pose a serious concern for resident care facilities.
Falls resulting in injury cause physical pain and stress to elderly patients and take a toll on their quality of life.
Even if a fall doesn't result in an injury, it can cause a lingering fear and an economic burden to your medical facility.
A complete fall prevention program is essential for long-term care and resident care facilities, and should consider the
patient's level of independence and mobility. Monitoring equipment and systems are key in making residents and their families
feel safer and improving caretaker responses.
For patients who are more active, and at risk for hip fractures,
hip shields or hip protectors, can be worn under clothing for extra protection. The extra padding helps residents
feel more secure and confident while protecting against possible fractures.
Protective foam pads are sewn into the garment with perforations that allow the skin to breathe. Made from cotton/spandex
blend, it will not shift or bunch.
