Charity helps keep vulnerable patients safe

Jan 08, 2024

Falls are the 2nd leading cause of unintentional injury and death worldwide. Being hospitalised puts patients at further risk for falls due to illness and the newness of a hospital environment.

Thanks to our funding, we are helping staff to identify patients who are at risk and reduce incidents of falls at LNWH NHS Trust. The recently implemented “Think Yellow” initiative involved giving yellow kits, including a yellow blanket and socks, to patients at risk of falling so staff can easily identify them for better monitoring.

If you work at LNWH NHS Trust and have a great idea, but don’t have the funds to make it a reality, why not apply to the Charity. We could help you to make a difference.
