Fall Prevention: It’s Everyone’s Concern

Understanding fall risks and taking preventive action is important at all ages.

Seniors have a higher incidence of falls, as well as a higher incidence of fall related adverse outcomes.

Falls are a leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries in people aged 65 and older. Typically, fall injuries are fractures which occur both to the upper and lower extremities, and vertebrae. Head injuries also can occur. The immediate risks of hip replacement due to a fracture from a fall are low following surgery for a person without chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or lung disease. These risks (blood clots, heart arrythmias, heart attacks, pneumonia, and urinary tract infections) increase in the immediate post op period when Comorbidities exist.
