LNA Education – Falls – What Works and What Doesn’t!

It is time to bust some myths about preventing falls in hospitals. Working harder isn’t making a difference. Adding more strategies and interventions to the current plan won’t work either. It’s time to STOP doing the interventions that don’t work and START new strategies that have scientific evidence to back them. Learn the linkage between falls and delirium and how mobilization and other activities can keep your patients safe, their minds clear, and your workload lighter.
