Screening for Fall Risk and Promoting Good Health

Reducing risk factors known to contribute to injurious fall events in the home, community, or healthcare facility starts with incorporating basic screening into all medical visits. The Hendrich II Fall Risk Model can be used in office practices and across populations to document and quantify fall risk and thus reduce risk factors whenever possible to prevent injurious fall events.
