Tell Your Provider About Falls

Be sure to tell your provider (MD, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, Nurse) if you experienced a fall. A fall can be a risk factor that is modifiable with treatment. For all of us who treat patients at risk for falls or have a history of falls, our commitment is to learn from your falls, so we can treat or address the risk factors, and make sure that you don't continue to experience falls for the same reason. By telling your provider, we can help you reduce your risk and help you increase or maintain your independence. Don't be your own best advocate, speak up, and let us help. Your next fall could be devastating, and preventable." Pat Quigley MSN, PhD, MPH Patricia A. Quigley, Nurse Consultant, LLC Falls Expert
