Doctor in the House: Preventing Falls At The Hospital

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Falls among the elderly can occur anywhere, including at the hospital. So what can our healthcare system do to prevent and manage falls? In conjunction with the upcoming 1st World Congress on Falls and Postural Stability to be held in KL from 4-7 December, we’ll be speaking to consultant geriatrician Prof Dr Tan Maw Pin for a healthcare provider’s perspective on how to recognise, treat, and prevent further falls within the hospital setting.
