The statistics are alarming. Nationally, every 15 seconds an older adult is treated for a fall related injury in an emergency care center and many die from their injuries. Locally, over 200 people present each month to the CVPH Emergency Care Center with fall related injuries. There are ways to reducing your risk of falling and we’ve assembled a team of experts that can help:
- Troy Canada, Lead Occupational Therapist, CVPH
- Karen Prevo, RN, CVPH Trauma Program Manager
- Dr. Inez Reyna, opthomalogist, Eye Care for the Adirondacks
In addition to these presentations, this event includes a variety of displays and exhibits focused on home safety,fall prevention and total hip and knee replacement surgery. Light refreshments will be served.
What’s “Hip” is sponsored by The Foundation of Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital and hosted by the EXPLORE Trauma Committee.
