Study Description
Brief Summary:
Falls among elderly inpatients are common, multifactorial and associated with a significant increase of complications and morbidity. According to a recent Cochrane review, the effectiveness of fall prevention program has been assessed in community-dwelling and in long stay wards but not in rehabilitation wards (RW) and geriatric acute wards (GAW). IPR study aims to measure the impact of a multidisciplinary prevention program on falls in elderly inpatients.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Usual care Other: The multidisciplinary prevention program called "IPR" (in French "Identifier, Prévenir, Relever")

The intervention is a multidisciplinary program of fall prevention including 3 complementary interventions which focus on several stages of elderly inpatient management:

  1. Identification of patient's fall risk,
  2. Multifactorial fall prevention program (integrated actions targeted on risk factors, exercise programs and review of the hospital environment),
  3. "Get up" workshop and morbidity and mortality conferences related to fall cases
