Once a fall occurs it will be considered an accident.  Accidents will be classified as Avoidable or Unavoidable.   The facility must provide an environment free from accidents over which the facility has control, and provides supervision and assistive devices to each resident to prevent avoidable accidents including:

·         Identifying hazards and Risks

·         Evaluating and analyzing hazards and risks

·         Implementing interventions to reduce hazards and risks

·         Monitoring for effectiveness and modifying interventions when necessary
