The number one reason patients visit our Emergency Departments during winter storms is due to injury from falls.
While we want you to enjoy your snow day, we also want you to be safe! Injuries from falling are not only common when we have winter weather – they’re the top reason people seek treatment from our Emergency Departments and Urgent Care locations both during and directly following a winter weather event.
Below, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you prevent dangerous falls. Take a look, and exercise caution when venturing outside in snowy and/or icy conditions!
Regardless of your age, both the old and the young are at equal risk of a fall. Here are five tips to prevent a fall.
Remember, WakeMed emergency departments are always open – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Not sure if it’s worth a trip to the ER? View these helpful tips on when to visit the emergency department. For less serious or orthopaedic-related injuries, we also offer orthopaedic urgent care.
