In a nutshell: Interventions for fall prevention must consider facility costs for purchasing durable medical equipment (DME), especially since items are expensive, possibly non- reimbursable or ineffective in falls prevention. The purpose of this study was to monetize the aggregate costs for DME used for fall care for one nursing home of elderly fallers pre- and post-intervention.
