Falling Down

When a person over 50 falls down, the healing process tends to be complex, slow, debilitating, and can lead to decreased mobility, prolonged hospitalization, and even death.

Although we do not see many of our patients fall in the dialysis unit, they are at high risk for falls outside, in their homes, or elsewhere.  The dialysis care team has a strong role in fall prevention.  Check out the new posting on the NCS website for some facts and resources.
