Prevent Patients from Falling| $600 awarded

Application submitted by Kathy Wilson, Home Care Services
Aligning with Memorial’s safety goals to accurately assess and prevent patient falls, Home Care Services requested funds so they can participate in a national Patient Fall Benchmarking Project.  The funds will be used to train all home visiting and paraprofessional staff in using the MACH-10 assessment tool.  They plan to make the program sustainable by adding the annual fee to their 2014 budget.
