Risk Events

In hospitals and other health care facilities, falls are among the most frequently reported incidents. Falls can sometimes lead to severe injuries, such as hip fractures and head traumas. Immobility is a decrease in the amount of time spent up and moving. Immobility causes loss of muscle strength and bad changes in the heart and blood vessels.
