Falls Prevention Summit 2022: Reducing Inpatient Falls & Harm from Inpatient Falls

Thursday 3 Feb 2022


Follow the conference on Twitter #NHSfalls

This national falls summit focuses on reducing inpatient falls, and harm from inpatient falls. Through national updates, practical case studies and learning from the 2020 National Audit of Inpatient Falls report (interim report published May 2021). The conference will provide a step by step guide to implementing the multiple interventions that have been proven to reduce falls in your service.

“Falls are the most common incident affecting hospital inpatients, and one of their most serious consequences is a hip fracture.”

National Audit of Inpatient Falls, 13 May 2021

“Inpatient hip fractures were associated with a greater risk of institutionalisation and higher mortality compared to hip fractures sustained out of the hospital; reflecting the fact that inpatients tend to be frailer or more acutely unwell. However, better post fall management could improve outcomes for this patient group.”
