Take Steps to Help Seniors Prevent Falls

You'll see more focus on preventing falls in elderly patients.

One in 4 people age 65 and older will fall every year...leading to about 7 million injuries and over 27,000 deaths.

Identify high-risk patients. Ask seniors if they've fallen in the past year...feel unsteady when standing or walking...or worry about falling. Look for patients who appear to be off-balance or need to hold on to something while walking.
