Falls Prevention Week

Falls Prevention Week

It is Falls Awareness Week and nurses Florence Muratu and Ursula Abiodun are visiting our hospital sites providing advice on how to minimise the risk of falls both in hospital and at home.

The risk of taking a tumble increases with age but you can minimise that risk by running through a checklist of eight steps to being steady.

These include staying active, getting your sight and hearing checked, a medications review and getting enough vitamin D and calcium.  

You can find the team in the main reception areas of Ealing (Sept 21), Central Middlesex (Sept 22) and Northwick Park (Sept 23).
