FALL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS FAQs

Many different technologies are used for Fall Prevention in nursing homes and care homes. Some examples include Fall Monitoring and Prevention Devices such as sensor-based pressure mats, bed alarms, fall protection clothing and personal protective equipment, wheelchair alarm kits, and more. Solutions for Fall Management in care homes can be used in conjunction with one another to warn and alert nurses and care home staff and to provide prompt assistance. 

Nursing homes handle fall risk patients by using a combination of Fall Prevention Solutions in care homes as well as by assessing the individual risk factors of every individual in the nursing home and providing tailored care solutions to respond to any warnings or risks as they may arise. Through routine monitoring, staff training on fall prevention strategies, and implementing Fall Management Systems such as Fall Prevention Alarms in nursing homes, the risk of residents falling can be greatly reduced. 

In aged care facilities, Fall Management must include preventive measures as well as responsive strategies to mitigate risks. Fall Prevention in long term care may include routine exercise for risk-prone patients, risk assessments, and providing grab bars and other mobility aids throughout the facility. Fall response strategies should include rapid response times from care home staff, thorough documentation of the incident, and follow-up treatment as necessary. 

The most common cause of falls in nursing homes is the impaired mobility of a resident. This could occur for various reasons, such as the side effects of medication, poor strength and/or balance, physical impairments that limit mobility, or environmental hazards such as a wet floor. Fall Management in nursing homes must include the implementation of preventive and responsive strategies such as risk assessments, reviews of the patient’s medication schedule, and minimising environmental hazards that can contribute to falls in nursing homes. 

The best Fall prevention System for a nursing home must include a combination of risk prevention and response solutions such as wired or wireless bed alarms, chair alarms, sensor-based fall impact mats, and nurse call bell systems to provide immediate response from nursing home staff. All of these Fall Management Systems enhance communications, improve safety, and ensure timely medical assistance. These fall management systems often have features such as real-time Fall Monitoring, full integration with Nurse Call System and triaged alerts and notifications. 

Many technologies can be used to protect elderly residents from falls in nursing homes, aged care facilities, and other healthcare facilities where falling is a risk. Some common technological solutions include fall impact mats, chair and bed alarms, and slip-resistant socks and shoes. Nurse Call Bell Systems are also commonly used in nursing homes and care facilities to provide prompt response to any incidents, including falls. When used in tandem with bed and chair alarms, for example, nurses may be able to avert a fall or provide immediate assistance. 

Assistive devices can prevent falls by providing patients prone to falling with the support and mobility assistance needed to perform routine tasks such as walking, using the restroom, sitting, standing, or getting into a bed. Depending on the needs and mobility restrictions of the individual, assistive devices such as walking sticks, handrails, grab bars, raised toilet seats, shower commodes, as well as hoists and wheelchairs can provide essential balance and stability whilst minimising the risks of falling when performing various tasks. 

Nursing interventions for falls typically include a combination of both preventive and responsive strategies. Responsive measures include conducting routine risk assessments, minimising environmental hazards in the nursing home or care facility, providing assistive devices, and educating nursing staff and patients about fall prevention. Responsive strategies include rapid response to an incident, communicating between healthcare providers after an incident, documenting the incident, and re-evaluating responsive measures and strategies to minimise falls in the future.
