Falls Are Serious
At WakeMed, our goal is to make your stay as safe and comfortable as possible - your health and safety are our top priority. Patients of all ages are at risk of falling during a stay in the hospital, and we make a serious effort to prevent this from happening. It is more common to fall in situations that are strange and unfamiliar to you.
How You Can Help Prevent Falls
Our staff will take measures to prevent falls, but there are ways you can help:
Taking Additional Precautions
Some patients, because of their condition, are identified as being at higher risk for falls. For those patients, we may need to take additional safety precautions.
If you have questions or would like additional information regarding how to prevent falls, feel free to talk with your caregiver.
