Slip And Fall Statistics Show Elderly Most Vulnerable

Slip and fall accidents or trip and fall accidents can occur at countless locations, including retail stores, restrooms, office buildings, banks, malls, construction sites, nursing homes, parking lots, casinos and grocery stores.

Building codes and safety standards are established in order to protect the public in those spaces. If any of the above areas are particularly dangerous, they should be equipped with proper warning signs or closed to public traffic altogether. In addition, all walkways and floors should be safe and free from slipping and tripping hazards. When safety standards are not upheld, visitors, workers or guests are in danger. Sadly, when danger is available and if the elderly are near the elderly become subject to it. This is why businesses should be held to the standard to keep their premises safe.

The elderly are especially prone to falls. Every year in the United States, one in three people over 65 will experience a fall, and more than 15,000 people aged 65 or older died as a result of a fall in one recent year.

Consider these statistics from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

1 in 3 adults aged 65 and older suffer a slip and fall each year.

One in three adults aged 65 and older falls each year.

Nearly one in three of those adults will have injuries severe enough to affect their ability to live independently. The falls may also increase the likelihood of an early death.

Older adults are hospitalized for fall-related injuries five times more often than they are for injuries from other causes.Older adults are hospitalized for fall-related injuries five times more often than they are for injuries from other causes.

ER departments treat about 2.5 million fall injuries among older adult each year, and about one-third of those patients are admitted to the hospital for treatment.ER departments treat about 2.5 million fall injuries among older adult each year, and about one-third of those patients are admitted to the hospital for treatment.
