Author: Mathis L. Vincent,Theo M. Accidental falls are the leading cause of death among older adults in the United States. One third of all adults aged 65 and older report falling each year. Book title: Accidental Falls: Causes, Prevention and Intervention. Elders living in institutions have 3 times the chance of falling compared to those living in their homes. Accidental falls are also very common in children of all ages. Young children learning to walk and toddlers are at greater risk of accidental falls resulting in possible cranio-cerebral injury.

Fall prevention is a variety of actions to help reduce the number of accidental falls suffered by older people. MORSE FALL SCALE Tools are using for assessment. Falls and fall related injuries are among the most serious and common medical problems experienced by older adults. Nearly one-third of older persons fall each year, and half of them fall more than once.

Background: Fall prevention efforts often focus on children or elderly, but falls are also a leading cause of morbidity among working-age adults. This study describes the causes and risk factors associated with falls in a working-age population. Methods: Coded and narrative data on injured persons and circumstances associated with falls were obtained from . Army accident reports dated. September 1994-September 2002.

Accidental falls are the leading cause of death among older adults in the United States. One third of all adults aged 65 and older report falling each year. Elders living in institutions have 3 times the chance of falling compared to those living in their homes. Accidental falls are also very common in children of all ages. Young children learning to walk and toddlers are at greater risk of accidental falls resulting in possible cranio-cerebral injury.
