We’ve all seen the commercials depicting the misfortune of an individual taking a fall in their home. The scene typically plays out with the fall victim on the floor calling for help, followed by a sales pitch for the product being advertised. While the actors on the screen are simply playing a part, the incident shown is far from fiction. According to the CDC, older adults are treated for falls every eleven seconds. Since more than 2.8 million fall injuries occur annually, there is certainly a great need to raise awareness, or at least offer a reminder to those at risk. With statistics like these, a fall injury is likely to hit close to home for many.
However, what the commercials do not show is what happens afterward. We can assume medical interventions were provided, but what kind of aid is given when the hospital stay is over?
