A team approach is required to effectively implement a falls prevention program that can help reduce the number of falls and fall-related injuries at a skilled nursing facility or assisted living community. Staff should know the risk factors contributing to falls and ways to prevent them. In addition, they should be able to manage injuries that result from falls.

Staff should understand what it means to work in a safe environment, where they can work together as a team and share information openly. It also means they understand that keeping residents safe is the most important consideration.

Important strategies include:

  • Provide staff with education, including an overview of guidelines and how they will be implemented.
  • Highlight effective intervention studies.
  • Establish responsibilities among staff for fall prevention activities.
  • Measure your progress and share updates with staff.
  • Encourage staff by highlighting successes and identifying positive impacts of implementation.
