In a nutshell: This retrospective analysis looked to describe characteristics of middle-age inpatient fallers and the risk factors behind their falls and injuries. The age group of 45-64 years was compared with ages 21-44 and 65-90. Their acute illness was found to mark them as vulnerable to fall and injury, the same as the older population, and they should not be overlooked for prevention measures.
