Las caídas y las lesiones resultantes son frecuentes en el entorno hospitalario. De hecho, las caídas con lesiones graves se encuentran entre los principales eventos informados en entornos médicos. Cada año en los Estados Unidos, cientos de miles de pacientes caen en un entorno hospitalario con aproximadamente la mitad de las caídas que resultan en lesiones. Las caídas del paciente son prevenibles. Con la evaluación correcta, el conocimiento de los riesgos de caídas y la capacitación adecuada del personal, las instalaciones médicas pueden aumentar la seguridad de todos los pacientes. Este curso analizará el impacto actual de las caídas de los pacientes en los entornos de atención médica, cómo evaluar el riesgo de caídas en los pacientes y las medidas que el personal puede tomar para reducir el riesgo y la atención de los pacientes que terminan cayendo.

Falls and resulting injuries are frequent in hospital settings. In fact, falls with serious injuries are among the top events reported in medical settings. Every year in the United Sates, hundreds of thousands of patients fall while in a hospital setting with approximately half of falls resulting in injury. Patient falls are preventable. With the right assessment, knowledge of fall risks, and proper staff training, medical facilities can increase safety for all patients. This course will discuss the current impact of patient falls in healthcare settings, how to assess risk for falls in patients, and measures that staff can take to reduce risk and care for patients who do end up falling.
