What Is A Fall Risk?Fall Risk determines Service Level
The process of being admitted into a nursing home involves medical assessments, billing determinations and paper work. Customers of nursing homes often do not realize that the nursing home determines the level of care that is needed for a resident prior to admission. A nurse or other medical professional will typically review submitted medical records, take a complete health history and assess the needs of the future resident. Every nursing home does or should determine whether a resident is at risk for falling. The nursing homes will rate the risk that a resident has of falling and based on the risk level will take precautions and assign staff to follow safety rules and to assist residents to avoid falls. The nursing home should institute fall prevention procedures.
