Fall Prevention Program
Every year, millions of adults fall, leading to injuries and emergency room visits. Many of these falls and injuries can be prevented.
Facts about falls:
- Older adults fall because of tripping
- Falls are the most common cause of injury visits to the ER
- Falls cause more open wounds, fractures and brain injuries than any other cause.
- Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in people older than 65.
