Towards Zero Falls
Mersey Care is committed to reducing the number of falls and has introduced new practices to ensure that, which include:
- 100 percent of inpatients have a falls screening within 24 hours of admission and those at risk of falls have a multi-factorial risk assessment and management plan in place
- 20 percent reduction in harm related to falls in inpatient areas taking account of the previous 24 month rolling baseline by September 2021.
- Standardised falls risk assessment process across community settings introduced by September 2021
- Develop a clear pathway for access to support services for those identified as at risk of falling in the community by September 2021, supported by our integrated care teams.
