Evaluation of the Fall Risk of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery Patients by Establishing a Fall Risk Score and a Procedure Instruction in Clinical Routine.

Christian Lycke, Hartmut Bork, Birgit Feindt, Ulrich J A Spiegl, Christoph Josten, Johannes K M Fakler, Andreas Roth,

This article examines the risk of falls of orthopaedic surgery patients on admission to hospital. For this purpose, an internal clinical fall risk score was developed, which divides the patients into three risk categories. Subsequently, the validity of the score was recorded and possibilities for reducing the individual risk of ... Read more >>
