STOP Patient Falls — Strategies for Implementation of an Effective Fall Prevention Program
Web Seminar

Wednesday, January 30,  11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

In September 2012, Sharp Memorial Hospital’s “Safe Patient Mobilization” (SPM) protocol became the first program in the United State to be recognized as a Picker Institute Always Events.  The goal of the SPM is to reduce patient falls while also reducing employee injuries, with an emphasis on toileting. Results already seen include a 53% decrease in the hospital’s fall rate and an incremental increase – 34 percentile points – the hospitals HCAHPS score.  The hospital remains committed to stopping patients from ever falling.  Learn about this exciting program including:

  • Fall Risk Assessment
  • Fall Risk Identification
  • Preventive Interventions
  • Patient Education
  • Staff Education
