Preparing for Your Stay

Call, Don't Fall! We're Here to Help

Let us help you avoid falls during your stay with us

Some patients staying at the hospital try to "do too much too soon." They might not want to bother the staff, or they might just be testing their own capabilities before or after treatment.

Resist the temptation. Patients who try to get out of bed when they shouldn't might fall, and not surprisingly, falling often means injuries.

In this video, UCH Chief Nursing Officer Carolyn Sanders explains the seriousness of patient falls, and shows you how to avoid them.
