Fall-Related Injury Reduction
Viconic Health is pleased to announce a grant program to support the adoption of Viconic Fall Defense flooring underlayment that endeavors to reduce the risk of injury when residents fall onto a flooring surface in long-term and senior care environments.
Addressing fall-related injury risk at the floor level is relatively new to the senior care sector but promises to have a dramatic impact on patient outcomes and risk management. By installing a permanent layer of impact-absorbing material below a flexible floor covering in high fall risk areas, a significant reduction in the severity and/or frequency of fall-related injuries is anticipated thereby allowing for greater continuity of care, reduced hospitalization rates, and better clinical and operational outcomes.
