Falls can happen to anyone, at any time and almost any place. They can have bad effects on your health. Falls can be accidental or may result from a physical condition caused by illness, medications and/or risk factors. The best way nursing homes can prevent falls from happening is to always be aware that they can happen and to take appropriate prevention measures.
