Falls Prevention Summit 2019: Reducing Inpatient Falls & Harm from Inpatient Falls

This Conference is now Closed

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  National Audit of Inpatient Falls, the conference will provide a step by step guide to implementing the multiple interventions that have been proven to reduce falls in your service.

“An 800-bed hospital will have an average of 1,500 inpatient falls per year costing approximately £2,600 per patient. Falls are associated with increased length of stay, additional surgery and unplanned treatment. Multiple interventions by the multidisciplinary team and tailored to the patient can reduce falls by 20–30%”

FFAP May 2019 

“Inpatient falls are common and can be life-changing for patients. They cost the NHS and social care an estimated £630 million annually. In 2017 approximately 250,000 patients had a fall in hospital.”
