In a nutshell: This study looked into how much agreement there was between reports of falls in long-term care facilities and video footage of the falls over a six year period. There was agreement between video footage and reports under half of the time. These technologies incorporating video capture or wearable sensors can improve our ability to understand the mechanisms involved in falls and to improve the prevention of falls in long-term care facilities.
