Falls are the leading cause of death, injury, and hospital visits by seniors. As many as 1 in 3 seniors will fall this year, and a single fall can dramatically decrease the quality of life, increase pain, cost thousands of dollars, and result in a shorter life span. Medicare has taken notice of this and is implementing physician incentives plus, under the Affordable Care Act, will begin requiring fall prevention screening and testing as part of both the initial patient checkup and annual wellness visits.
