Ryde’s falls prevention success

Coinciding with April Falls Day and Month celebrations, Ryde Hospital recently reached its six month milestone of zero falls resulting in serious injury (SAC 2).

Over the last two years, staff have been working hard to implement strategies to prevent patient falls and Ryde’s Falls Coordinator Jennifer Piggott said that hard work is paying off. 

Not having any falls resulting in serious injury is a huge deal for our hospital as it means our fall prevention strategies are working.

To celebrate April Falls Day, Jennifer, clinical nurse consultant Sandra Lever, and enrolled nurse Claire O’Reagan set up a kiosk in the foyer with flyers and information, and handed out some prizes throughout the day, to raise awareness amongst staff.
