Falls in older people

The shift begins with a seemingly routine call to an older person who has fallen from a seated position and cannot get up. Your crew mate thinks this is just a routine “fall, lift only”... Can you assess the risk of serious injury and manage them appropriately?

This issue explores the topic of falls in older people and recent evidence that this demographic of patients are at particular risk of major trauma. There is coverage of anatomy and physiology, and discussion about the particular risk factors you should be taking account of during your assessment.
