In a nutshell: This article asks what a fall actually is, differentiating between falls, slips and trips. Researchers use a certain definition for falls, as does the site, which can differ depending on its cause and the incident itself; does ti count if the victim doesn’t reach the floor? It also ponders whether a definition is even needed, and asks what the information can be used for.
