Falls and injury from falls are a significant health concern in Canada and a critical issue in health care safety. Falls have a devastating physical and psychological impact on an individual’s quality of life.
This site is designed to provide important information and tools for Clinical Staff to use in supporting the prevention of falls and Contributing to WRH’s vision of Outstanding Care – No Exceptions!
Stop and Check: All staff and volunteers:
Please perform a visual sweep and when passing patient rooms “STOP & CHECK” – visually observe the patient to ensure the patient is safe in bed and obtain help from nursing staff if needed before passing by room.
