In a nutshell: This case study describes how a trust is aiming to prevent inpatient falls by developing a stepwise approach underpinned by information from national sources. It is calculated that in an average 800-bed acute hospital trust there will be about 24 falls every week and 1260 falls every year, which represents the highest volume of patient safety incidents reported in hospital trusts in England.
