Falls prevention policy and procedures are required in acute care or long term care facilities, but I'm looking for guidance on what other types of services, including in-home services, might be required to do re: preventing or responding to a client's fall.

A home care nurse can use her computer to grade level of risks for falls and can tell you the results.

thank you for taking time to answer! . I didn't explain myself well enough; I'm looking for examples of professional or state standards or regulations that specifically require a falls risk assessment or protocols for a response to an observed fall in settings such as adult day care, in home services.

The person's doc can do an easy test to check for risks of falls in his ir her office-just by having them walk and sit down and stand up from a chair-to begin with-how they walk alone will give a good idea what will be happening.
