Falls in Radiology

As healthcare facilities continually look to strengthen their falls prevention programs and respond to the high-risk problem of persistent patient falls, evaluation of falls events can provide additional opportunities to address this organizationwide challenge. The adoption of standardized strategies to reduce falls risk—including ongoing education about safe patient handling practices, handoff communications, and use of an assessment tool or checklist—helps to identify patient risk factors and could mitigate injurious patient falls.
