Safe from Falls Collaborative

In 2009 the Maryland Patient Safety Center (MPSC) launched the Safe from Falls Collaborative  with participants including acute care, long term care and home health organizations. The collaborative provided toolkits, educational sessions and webinars as well as collaborative calls and consultation. While the rate of falls in all three settings remained flat the rate of falls with injury in the acute care hospitals decreased by 52.3% from September 2009 to May 2014 when the collaborative ended for acute care and home health.
