Elderly fallers algorithm
We have developed, in conjunction with a consultant geriatrician, a group of GPs and representatives from community falls teams, a simple tool to assist crews to better manage elderly fallers. The algorithm has three steps and triages the patient according to their presenting complaint as well as taking into consideration their existing medical diagnoses and social care needs.
