Call don't fall

Better care, everywhere, for everyone

Join our fight against falls

It happens – patients sometimes fall in hospital. It may be as a result of their illness, injury or medication or simply trying to get to the bathroom in a hurry.

Here are a few tips to keep you safe:

  • Tell our nursing, medical or therapy staff if you have fallen recently or are worried about falling.
  • Press your call bell if you need help. Call Don’t Fall!
  • Wear well-fitting slippers or ask us for non-slip socks.
  • Take your time. Sit upright for a few moments before standing. Get up slowly and make sure you feel steady before walking.
  • Keep your glasses handy and don’t forget to wear them.
  • Become familiar with your room, bedside area and bathroom. Ask for clutter to be moved if your path is not clear.
  • Ask for help if you need to go to the toilet. Call Don’t Fall!
