Between 700,000 and 1,000,000 patients fall in hospitals every year. Of these falls, 30 – 50% result in injury costing hospitals an additional $34B year. In addition, when a patient is injured due to a fall, they often experience loss of independence and can even suffer loss of life.
Our Senior population is growing. Without a significant change to patient safety, the number of falls and cost of each fall is likely to increase. The CareView Clinical Safety System assists your hospital to build a culture of patient safety – now and into the future.
