Falls are the commonest cause of trauma in older adults and are of particular concern in hospital settings (Ojo et al., 2009). Osteoporotic fractures occurring as a consequence of falls are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in this population (Stubbs et al., 2009). Older adult psychiatric long-stay patients are at elevated risk of osteoporosis, with one recent study confirming this link by demonstrating that over half had osteoporosis (58%) with just under one-third having ostetopenia (32%) (Stubbs et al., 2009). The incidence of falls is known to be higher in psychiatric settings, and this is particularly so in older adult settings (Blair and Gruman, 2006). Risk factors predisposing older adult psychiatric patients to falls include chronic illness, high rates of cognitive disturbance, psychotropic medication use and behavioral manifestations, and in particular agitation and wandering, two factors which are both strongly associated with falls (Blair and Gruman, 2006). Clearly, older adult psychiatric patients are at an elevated risk of falls (Blair and Gruman, 2006). Even if a patient has not fallen prior to hospitalization, the mere presence of being admitted immediately increases their subsequent falls risk (Blair and Gruman, 2006).
