Learn quick-to-train strategies. Help reduce bedside falls in your communities.
Mar 16, 2022
78% of falls happen between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. And the most common location prior to falls is the bed. But care providers have limited time to offer effective training programs to help prevent these falls—they need fall prevention strategies that both provide results and that staff can learn quickly. That’s why SafelyYou has developed the Top 5 Fall Prevention Tactics You Can Train in 15 Minutes, so care providers can educate staff in minimal time and help reduce the risk of unwitnessed falls by the bedside. Learn all about it in our March National Fall Huddle.

You’ll see how enriched engagement drives regulated sleep patterns and more, reducing fall risk and improving overall well-being.
