Injury Prevention / Preventing Falls

Falls are the leading cause of accidental death for adults 65 and older. Because of vision problems, osteoporosis, poor mobility and frailty, older people are especially at risk for hip fractures and other injuries resulting from falls. In Preventing Falls, viewers will learn to recognize and correct hazardous situations that can lead to falls, such as shoes, wet or uneven surfaces and getting out of bed incorrectly. Included with the material are ready to copy check lists of hazards and screening instruments to assess risk.

This tape is part of a ten tape series listed in this catalog as Injury Prevention for the Elderly, The Series.
