Every year staff across Ryde Hospital get involved in April Falls Day to raise awareness about the impact of falls and to promote the latest best practice falls prevention strategies.
This year staff celebrated with a blazing balance challenge and a stall in the hospital foyer with crosswords and quizzes with prizes.
Ryde Hospital Director of Nursing and Midwifery Alecia Daly said falls prevention would be promoted across the hospital throughout the month.
“We are focusing on targeted education on all wards on falls risk screening and ensuring staff have up-to-date training,” she said.
“A huge thank you to all our staff who got involved on April Falls Day, and to all staff for your ongoing commitment to educate patients on falls prevention.”
