People age, and due to the escalation and places significant for the loved ones and the carers and health care providers, it is essential to prevent the occurrence and improve the elderly fall prevention. Besides, falls can lead to severe and, in some situations, life-threatening injuries such as sprains, bruises, cuts, fractures, and bone breakages. Together with all these, the scare and phobia of falling can result in loss of confidence and courage, mobility independence, and basically affect some people’s quality of life. At home and the hospital scenarios, falls keep being among the most common occurrences. Fall prevention can be confidently achieved by acquiring fall alarms, particularly fall alarms for the elderly; physical changes, growing old, health conditions, and medications are the primary factors for a prominent increase in the risk of falling. A fall prevention device is essential at home and the hospital because falls are the top cause of injuries among the elderly; fall prevention must be strategically handled.

Furthermore, it is crucial to recognize that executing these effective practices is not an easy task.

There are factors that make this task somewhat complex include:

  • Fall prevention should be matched with the other priorities for the patient. The patient is normally not at the hospital due to the falls; therefore, attention is seamlessly directed elsewhere. However, a fall by a sick patient might be disastrous and increase the recovery duration process.
  • Fall prevention is among the many activities required to prevent patients from harm while on their hospital stay. How must elderly fall prevention be facilitated while prioritizing other factors, for instance, infection control?
  • Fall prevention should be matched with the focus to mobilize patients. It might be tempting to leave patients on their beds to prevent falls; however, patients require to move, ambulate, keep their strength and avoid more complications brought by bed rest.
  • Fall prevention is interdisciplinary; families, patients, occupational therapists, physical therapists, pharmacists, nurses, and physicians.
  • Fall prevention requires it to be customized. Every patient has a unique set of fall risk factors; thus, care should carefully address every patient’s unique needs.
    Comprehending the cause of falls is vital in creating your prevention program. Falls can be categorized into three types including:
  • Accidental. They occur in relatively low-risk patients due to an environmental hazard. It is essential to improve environmental safety to help in reducing fall risk for these patients.
  • Physiological. These are unanticipated falls that happen to a patient who is otherwise at low risk of falling because of an occurrence whose timing might not have been predicted, such as syncopal episode, stroke, or seizure.
    Physiological. These are anticipated falls that happen for patients with falling risk factors that can be determined in advance, including high-risk medication, frequent toileting needs, abnormal gait, or mental issues. Crucial actions such as keen supervision of the patients should be taken to prevent these falls and address the patient’s risk factors.
