What can a hospital do to reduce the risk of patients falling?

Falling is one of the gravest dangers that older and more frail patients face during hospital stays.

Deciding to place a family member in a nursing home or similar assisted living facility is often difficult. You want your loved one to receive excellent care and have a high quality of life.
