Abstract: Falls substantially impact the health and recovery of hospital inpatients. . Epworth is involved in a NHMRC funded research project by Monash Partners to investigate effectiveness of falls prevention strategies, including mobilisation alarms. Funnels plots are used to compare falls prevention strategies of 7 anonymous wards. Funnel plots clearly show which wards need to be followed up, particularly those above and below the 99.7% limits. The next step would be to investigate possible reasons including differences in case mix.
