New Model Predicts Two-Year Risk for Fall Injuries in Nursing Home Residents

TUESDAY, March 14, 2023 (HealthDay News) -- A new risk prediction model can identify residents of nursing homes at greatest risk for fall-related injuries, according to a study published online March 8 in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

Matthew S. Duprey, Pharm.D., Ph.D., from the Brown University School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island, and colleagues developed and validated a series of models to predict the absolute risk for fall-related injuries in nursing home residents. Models relied on data from Medicare claims and Minimum Data Set v3.0 clinical assessments.
