Each year in US hospitals it is estimated that there are 700,000 to 1,000,000 patient falls.1
Every day we do our part to make sure each patient is safe when they get up and out of their hospital bed. We put all our best practices in place to help prevent falls. As a part of this initiative, we also make sure patient slippers are well-fitting to promote safety. At Cardinal Health we work to provide you the education tools needed to guide proper slipper sizing.
Cardinal Health provides Patient Slipper options including yellow and red Risk Management options to meet the needs of your facility.
