Our Stryker Prevention Philosophy is PRODUCT + PROCESS = PREVENTION. As part of this philosophy, we have created our Fall Prevention Program.
Ongoing patient safety initiatives and continued vigilance regarding fall prevention are necessary to ensure patient safety and high-quality standards of care. With change comes opportunities to look closely at existing policies and standards of care, update patient safety measures to adhere to evidence-based best practices, and utilize bed technology to help nursing and ancillary staff in their efforts to keep patients safe and comply with facility policies. Through our Fall Prevention Program, Stryker is providing evidence-based tools to help drive continuous quality improvement efforts and help facilities develop proper policies and procedures around Fall Prevention.
