"Fall Prevention"
Presented by Joshua Miralgio
Thursday, May 9, 12:00pm EST
 
 
Learning Objectives:
  • Facts and financial impacts of falls
  • How to implement an effective and measurable fall prevention program
  • Fall prevention programs are revenue opportunities and marketing tools
Falling is the leading cause of injury and death among people 65 and older in the US. Actually every 3rd American over 65 falls every year. Falling is also #1 reason for liability claims against hospitals and long term care companies and the average cost per claim is $131,104.

Falls cannot be prevented, but they can be reduced and their impacts can be mitigated by implementing effective and measurable balance testing and training programs.

Fall prevention programs are a significant revenue opportunity for medical fitness centers. Medical fitness centers are in a superior position to implement effective and measurable programs for their members and patients while adding significant value to their hospital customers.
