Hospital Care and Older Adult Independence – September CARE Connections

Why do hospitals’ attempts to avoid falls leave patients more vulnerable?

Read about the problem—and the intervention two School of Nursing faculty developed to address it—in the September issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“Rather than asking nurses to take on more and just find a way to make everything work, we need to build a system that enables them to get their patients up and walking.”

This month’s CARE Connections also includes COVID-19 resources; profiles of CARE undergraduate scholarship winner Ben Stephens and CARE Affiliate Lisa Bratzke, PhD, RN, ANP-BC, FAHA; and news and events related to older adult health and well-being.
