Fall prevention: Rising to the challenge

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in Americans age 65 and older.1 Statistics show that this public health problem is not being adequately addressed by standard interventions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that an older American falls every second.2 And older adults are dying from fall-related injuries at nearly twice the rate they were 20 years ago.

  • Falling is certainly not a new issue, but it’s becoming ever more urgent as the number of older adults in the U.S. rapidly increases. Many are calling this population shift the “Gray Tsunami” because of the substantial impact it’s set to have on the healthcare system and the economy.
  • In reviewing CDC fall statistics and U.S. Census Bureau projections, researchers predict that ED visits due to falls among older adults could hit 5.7 million by 2030. Fatal falls could hit 100,000 per year.
