This is one of the greatest health threats to all elderly patients but particularly to those who are in long-term residential care. Through the review of seven categories, a score is developed which indicates whether the patient is at high risk or low risk of falls.
In addition to the seven categories for review with the elements of each, the template has three Instruction pop-ups.
One Instruction pop-up is on the Gait/Balance Category
Another instruction pop-up is on the Medications Category
The last instruction button is on Predisposing Disease Category
Under the navigation button for NH Master at the right hand side of the template is a link to the Guidelines for Fall Prevention.
