According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 4 individuals over the age of 65 fall each year. Once an individual has fallen, they often fear additional falls or sustain
an injury which decreases their mobility and places them at increased risk for future falls.

Once a resident falls, interventions preventing future falls must be put in place. This requires conducting a proper investigation that seeks the root causes of the fall. For nursing facilities,CMS regulation F689, Free of Accident/Hazards/Supervision/Devices, requires a review of prior incidents/incidents to determine the root cause and to identify, implement and monitor effective interventions.

The investigative process should include input from the Interdisciplinary Team, including the staff at the bedside. The staff can provide insight into the residents’ customary routine and their ideas for preventing future falls. This team should also include the resident and their family, especially if falls occurred prior to admission so a realistic plan is developed
