A Post-Fall Event Roadmap from HealthCap®

Dave Kyllo

Falls continue to be the number reason for long term care provider liability claims according to HealthCap.  Despite all that providers do to reduce falls in their facilities, falls are inevitable in senior care.  Responding appropriately and following a specific protocol when falls occur is critical to mitigating liability risks.
HealthCap has developed a Post-Fall Event Roadmap setting out seven easy-to-follow steps to be taken when a fall occurs.  This practical roadmap will help prevent staff members from inadvertently skipping an important action to be taken when a fall occurs.
Numerous useful resources can be found on the Resource and Education Center on the HealthCap website. Providers will find education opportunities (including ANCC-approved sessions), manuals, best practices and model policies.
HealthCap is endorsed by AHCA/NCAL and is the premier program solely dedicated to providing liability insurance to senior care communities.  One of the reasons HealthCap gets such great results is its focus on quality care as the foundation of good risk management practices.  HealthCap clients have the fewest liability claims in the industry and HealthCap settles claims for approximately one-half the industry average.
HealthCap is owned and governed by the senior care providers insured by HealthCap.  AHCA/NCAL members get a bonus advantage by always receiving a 10% discount on their HealthCap premiums.
HealthCap clients also receive:
  • Risk management services that make a financial difference
  • An annual on-site risk consult
  • Unlimited telephone support
  • Accredited in-service education
