Fall Prevention

Cook Children's used evidence-based research to remodel our medical center's fall prevention programCook Children's used evidence-based research to remodel our medical center's fall prevention program. In just two years, our fall rate has decreased from 44 to seven injury falls; none of these required an extended stay for the patient. The new fall prevention program has saved Cook Children's about $60,000. We have had poster presentations in numerous conferences and, most recently, won the Outstanding Evidence-Based Practice poster at the Society of Pediatric Nursing's national conference.
