How does the model work?

The Hendrich II Fall Risk Model was created from the results of a large, case-controlled study of hospitalized patients.   The Hendrich II Fall Risk Model incorporates the results into an effective and efficient assessment.  Moreover, the Hendrich II Fall Risk Model is accurate.  It is both sensitive (74.9% of high-risk patients were correctly identified in the study) and highly specific (73.9% of patients not at risk of falling were correctly identified).  Up to 10-15% of first time fallers fall due to non-predictable risk factors.   A successful, predictive fall model should identify and respond to true fall risk factors of the person in real time.
