Strategies for Reducing Falls in the ED

As more and more patients enter the hospital through the ED, emergency nurses are not only tasked with saving lives in emergencies – but they’re also responsible for keeping patients safe from adverse outcomes such as falls. In this educational webinar we will share eye-opening statistics, discuss human and financial costs of falls, identify risk factors and interventions, and focus on evidence-based practices in the utilization of technology for prevention of patient falls.

Course Objectives:

  • Distinguish between the different types of falls

  • Discuss evidence-based fall prevention practices in the emergency department
