Patient falls are a fixture in The Joint Commission’s list of top 10 sentinel events; in fact, they were the third highest sentinel event reported to the accreditor in 2016. Causes of falls can include inadequate assessments, side effects from medications or diseases, and environmental hazards, as well as a lack of leadership or staff orientation.

During this three-hour virtual workshop, Carole Eldridge, DNP, RN, CNE, NEA-BC, and Virginia Hall, DNP, MSN/Ed. RN, CNE, will provide a step-by-step guide to setting up a successful and sustainable evidence-based multidisciplinary fall prevention program in your facility.
