In a nutshell:
A 15-month falls prevention strategy project at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen hospitals has cut the number of falls per 1,000 beds days to 5.3 compared to a previous average of  six.  The strategy makes sure every patient is assessed, and if they are at risk a care plan is produced. This can include improving footwear and giving patients access to a bell to alert staff.
