Aim: Patient falls within the Rehab Services outpatient clinics are the primary safety event reported through the Henry Ford Health R/L process. According to the report from the American Physical Therapy Association from September 2023, "The Economic Value of Physical Therapy in the United States" the average cost savings for fall prevention programs is estimated to be $2144 per Episode of Care. For these reasons, fall reduction was set as a goal in the Rehab Services Line Strategic Plan. This project was developed to: Identify patients at higher risk for falls; Improved documentation of fall risk; Enhance communication of fall risk precautions; Improve R/L reporting documentation; and Minimize falls in our outpatient rehab clinics.
