Background

This brochure was developed 10 years ago by staff, but patient partners were not involved. This time around, we have reviewed other health authorities’ hip protector brochures and made substantial revisions to the document.

This brochure is to be given to patients and/or family members of patients who are at risk of falling and breaking their hips while in our care (hospital or long-term care) or living at home in community. The goal of the brochure is to encourage use in hospital or purchase of hip protectors (in long-term care or community) to reduce the risk of the patient falling and breaking their hip.
