SUITES FOR LEASE
alls are not an inevitable part of aging. There are specific
things that you, as an older adults' health care provider,
can do to reduce their chances of falling. Researchers at
CDC's Injury Center created the STEADI (Stopping
Elderly Accidents, Deaths, & Injuries) Tool Kit to assist health
care providers who treat older adults who are at risk of falling
or who may have fallen in the past.
As a health care provider, you are already aware that falls are a
serious threat to the health and well-being of your older patients.
More than one out of four people 65 and older falls each year, and
over 2.8 million are treated in emergency departments annually
for fall injuries. You play an important role in caring for older
adults and you can help reduce these devastating injuries. The
STEADI Tool Kit contains resources and tools that will help
make fall prevention an integral part of your clinical practice.
The STEADI Tool Kit is based on a simple algorithm (adapted
from the American and British Geriatric Societies' Clinical
Practice Guideline). It includes basic information about falls,
case studies, conversation starters, and standardized gait and
balance assessment tests (with instructional videos). In addition,
there are educational handouts about fall prevention specifically
designed for patients and their friends and family.
STEADI materials can be used to assess, treat, and refer older
adult patients based on their fall risk in three phases:
