VHA National Center for Patient Safety
Falls Reduction Podcast (Part 1)

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?
