Horizon Medical Technologies, LLC - Providing Risk Reduction Solutions! The Leading Edge In Fall Prevention...
Providing Risk reduction Solutions!

A patient fall is the most common adverse event that occurs in a healthcare facility today. Each year, thousands of patients are injured, many severely, by a fall from their bed or chair.

Falls are responsible for 90% of all hip fractures and account for 87% of all fractures among people aged 65 years or older and are the second leading cause of spinal cord and brain injury.

Of all fractures from falls, hip fractures cause the greatest health problems and the greatest number of deaths.

Patient Fall Prevention and Restraint Reduction Solutions for Health Care...

Three hundred and fifty thousand (350,000) Americans sustain hip fractures annually, and the incidence is expected to reach 650,000 by the year 2050.

The current annual cost to the U.S. Health care system for acute and chronic care for patients with hip fractures is over $10 billion. That's an average cost exceeding $35,000 per patient.
Hip fracture is a major health catastrophe among older patients and the mortality rates are staggering: 24% of all patients die in the 12 months following injury and unfortunately, many patients who sustain a hip fracture are not able to return to their prior living situations. Commonly, they have a fear of falling, and this influences their ability to care for themselves independently. Falls are also listed as a reason for 40% of nursing home admissions.

Your supportive, ongoing nursing intervention augmented with the use of our fall prevention products and systems, can benefit clinical outcomes, reduce the patient's hospital stay, and, ultimately, lower costs.
