ST LOUIS, MO--(Marketwired - June 28, 2016) - Keystone Technologies, a leading force in health IT and senior care technology solutions, announced today that it has created an interactive online tool to help senior living communities assess their fall prevention procedures and processes. The free appraisal resource can be accessed at https://www.keystone-technologies.com/facility-fall-prevention-program-appraisal-tool.
According to the CDC, falls are leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries among older adults. Besides the obvious human toll, falls are also costly for senior living communities. Developed in collaboration with HealthCore Value Advisors and Foresite Healthcare, Keystone Technologies' new appraisal tool consists of 12 survey questions about:
- Culture of safety
- Definition of falls; processes and procedures
- Fall prevention program team
- Care process
- Environmental and equipment safety
- Continuous quality improvement initiatives
After completion of the survey, the tool will provide actionable recommendations and resources to help senior communities minimize falls.
"Patient falls remain a problem for even the most diligent senior living communities," says Scott Travis, Chief Marketing Officer of Keystone Technologies. "Directors and administrators often find themselves struggling to reduce incidents that cause so much pain for residents and their families. Our new survey asks respondents to provide thoughtful answers to key questions, and then delivers advice to help them improve their community's fall prevention program."
