How To Make Fall Prevention Screening and Assessment a Routine Part of Clinical Care
Falls in older adults are a significant and growing public health problem. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), injury death rates from falls nearly doubled between 2000 and 2013, from an average of 29.6 to 56.7 per 100,000 population. The direct medical costs of falls in the United States are projected to increase to $100 Billion by 2030.
