The CDC’s Injury Center created the Stopping Elderly Accidents, Death and Injury (STEADI) Toolkit, a free resource guide to assist health care providers with the tools they need to assess/address their patients’ fall risk. This guide also helps with fall prevention conversations with your patients. The STEADI Toolkit can be downloaded or ordered online.
Keeping Seniors on Their Feet
EmblemHealth is actively trying to help older members stay “on their feet.” Our Steps-4-Safety PATH program is available to Medicare and Dual Eligible Special Needs Plan (SNP) members who are considered to be at risk for a fall, or may have already suffered a fall or fracture. And all Managed Long Term Care (MLTC) members are eligible. For information about the program, call 1-888-447-5451.
