Among adults 64 years and older, falls are the leading cause of unintentional death (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2010a). Numerous factors increase the risk of falls, including a history of falling, being age 65 or over, reduced vision, orthostatic hypotension, gait and balance problems, urinary incontinence, use of walking aids, and the effects of various medications (e.g., anticonvulsants, hypnotics, sedatives, certain analgesics) (Deandrea et al., 2010). Common physical hazards that lead to falls include inadequate lighting, barriers along normal walking paths and stairways, and a lack of safety devices in the home. Often a fall leads to serious injury such as fractures or internal bleeding. Patients most at risk for injury are those with bleeding tendencies resulting from disease or medical treatments and osteoporosis. Injuries frequently result from accidental contact with objects on stairs, floors, bedside tables, closet shelves, refrigerator tops, and bookshelves. Children fall from anywhere (i.e., trees, wall/fences, playground equipment, furniture, and moving objects such as skateboards and bicycles). Forces from falls lead to injury with variable severity, depending on the height of the fall, body position on impact, and impact surface.
