Abstract

This article describes a fall reduction program implemented by the University of Wisconsin Medical Foundation in its 50+ clinic sites and departments located across 5 counties in Southern Wisconsin. The fall reduction program specifically targeted falls due to faints in the clinic setting. To reduce the organization's main reason for patient falls, guidelines were developed and mandatory education was given to staff working in high-risk areas.
