Fall Risk Assessment Tools

Fall risk assessment tools are used by nursing staff to evaluate the likelihood of falling for elderly patients. Falls are the leading cause of injury and accidental death for people aged 65 years and over. A fall risk assessment form is typically used to capture a patient’s fall history, medical records, equipment used and is then used to assign an overall fall risk rating. Fall risk ratings can help prioritize fall prevention measures for elderly patients.
