HHC InFocus - Understanding Our Quality & Safety Performance

Falls can cause moderate to severe injuries that reduce both mobility and independence and increase the risk of premature death.  Long term care residents, who are often frail and have limited mobility, have a higher risk of falling. HHC has an aggressive program to prevent and reduce falls among all its long term care residents.
