Effectively identify high-risk falls patients

The purpose of this falls prevention kit is to provide a quick and easy way to implement a visual cueing protocol in your hospital or clinic.

The range includes falls prevention non-slip hospital socks and a few different blankets, all of which are in bright yellow. The yellow fall prevention socks are our most popular hospital socks with the double tread. This helps keep patients secure on their feet, regardless of how the socks are put on or if they twist around the foot when worn. Both the yellow falls prevention socks and the yellow blankets act as visual aids for your team by indicating the patients who are at a higher risk of falling.

Fall prevention kit

Build your own kit

Every situation and every patient has different needs, which is why we offer falls prevention items individually, so that you can build your own Falls Prevention Kit.  The bright yellow colour signifies that someone is at a higher risk of falling. The YELLOW range reminds clinical staff, porters and family members that extra precautions need to be taken with particular patients. It’s easy to spot, and acts as a visual cue to helps teams know who to offer extra support to.

Falls risk yellow blankets

Reusable blankets for a more durable solution

The falls risk yellow blankets are available either as a temporary, short-term fix for a specific patient or you could opt to invest in launderable blankets to be used longer term. The short-term flame retardant fleece blankets are less expensive and are simply disposed of after being used by a patient, once they are discharged from your care. The patient specific blanket can remain on the patient throughout their patient journey and can be placed on top of the bed, on the lap or over the shoulders.

Alternatively, we offer two different sizes of a reusable, launderable cellular blanket. You can opt for a lap blanket or a single bed size blanket. This, being a more eco-friendly option, may comply with your organisation’s sustainability goals more appropriately.  The cellular blanket is made from flame retardant polyester fabric. It can be laundered in hospital laundries at thermal disinfection temperatures without shrinking or fading.

How the Fall Prevention Kit performs

Previous studies have shown that the Falls Prevention Kit REDUCED THE NUMBER OF FALLS BY 50% in an NHS hospital.
