National Center for Patient Safety Falls Toolkit 2004.

National Center for Patient Safety; NCPS

The National Center for Patient Safety created the Falls Toolkit to assist VA facilities in implementing or improving falls prevention efforts. The toolkit provides information on (1) designing a falls prevention and management program; (2) effective interventions for high-risk fall patients; (3) implementing hip protectors for high-risk fall patients; and (4) educating patients, families, and staff on falls and fall-injury prevention. The web version of the toolkit includes a falls notebook for practitioners implementing a program, media tools, and additional resources.
