Thanks for all that YOU do for us. Had a quick question about the Geriatric Falls segment in this episode of EM RAP. What study are you referring to regarding the reduction of fall-related return visits to the ED by 30% at 30 and 60 days if seen by PT.
Trying to get my department more PT access. Thank you!
