Balance and Fall Prevention
Blue Sky Therapy fully supports facilities and staff in taking a proactive approach to fall prevention and fall intervention. A fall prevention and intervention program is in place at all Blue Sky sites. Therapy will provide at least annual education to facility staff on Fall Prevention. Fall prevention and safety education to patients and caregivers is an ongoing goal for therapy. Blue Sky therapists perform quarterly screens to help identify patients at risk for falls and initiate therapy to prevent falls from occurring. Blue Sky therapists also screen every patient who does fall and assists nursing with identifying the most appropriate fall intervention.
