fall-prevention-don-t-let-fear-of-falling-slow-you-downAccording to the National Council on Aging, an older adult dies from a fall-related injury every 19 minutes.1 What’s more, over 70%of Emergency Department visits among those 65 years and older were related to falls.2 The fear of falling can limit independence and have a negative impact on an older adult’s quality of life.

In this podcast, Meaghan Carroll, MSN, RN, CEN, CNL, TCRN, Trauma Program Manager at Marin General Hospital, and Beverly Winsor, Fall Prevention Coordinator at MarinHealth Medical Center, discuss fall prevention and education. From putting away the throw rugs to tossing the backless slippers, there are many simple things people can do to reduce their risk of falling. Beverly Winsor also provides information about a collaboration between MMarinHealth Medical Center and A Matter of Balance: Managing Concerns About Falls, the award-winning fall prevention program for older adults.
