Read More

That’s why earlier this week, the Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare announced its Preventing Falls with Injury project. With patient falls accounting for approximately 11,000 deaths in U.S. hospitals annually, the Center began working on systems and solutions to combat this problem.
