Toronto Rehab has a comprehensive, evidenced-based falls prevention and management program called Stop Adverse Fall Events (SAFE). The program’s goal is to decrease the incidence of falls and standardize the approach to falls prevention and management across the hospital. A detailed review of current practice occurred across each of Toronto Rehab’s six clinical programs of care. Gap analysis between current and best practice resulted in 28 recommendations for practice change to enable a consistent evidenced-approach across the organization. Key process and outcome indicators are audited. Ongoing staff education and mentorship by the SAFE leaders and champions continues to ensure sustainability and awareness.
