Last modified by Doug Maynard on 2016/02/09 15:29


The webinar will outline the process and reasoning used by Health Sciences North to implement a pediatric falls prevention program for both their inpatient and outpatient units.  The Humpty Dumpty Program, developed by Miami Children’s Hospital was the program that was chosen, and customized, to meet the needs of the hospital’s patient population.  

The program will be explained in detail including both the inpatient and outpatient processes, a discussion regarding lessons learned and the evaluative process that will be occurring over the next few months as the program reaches its one-year anniversary since implementation.
