Falls reduction is a critical aspect of VA’s patient safety program.

Pat Quigley and Julia Neily joined me on a conference call to discuss this important issue.

This podcasts covers the first two questions they discussed:

  • Can Nurses alone effectively prevent falls?
  • Why has the VA focused primarily on protection from fall Injuries rather than falls?
