Medical Rehabilitation Webinar: Falls Reduction in Rehabilitation

Summary

Inpatient rehabilitation is a setting that by nature serves persons with a high risk for falling. Functional mobility is always impaired and cognition is often impaired as well. As they strive for more independence, these factors can lead to falls. Falls can lead to delays in rehabilitation, inability to meet goals, injury, and even mortality. A methodical approach to fall prevention addressing culture and utilizing data can lead to success in fall reduction. Experiences, successes, and lessons learned from Carolinas Rehabilitation’s journey will be shared.
