Emergency Medical Service attendances for adults with repeat falls in Western Australia: A state-wide retrospective cohort study

Conclusion: Nearly 30% of all patients attended by EMS for a fall, sustained repeat falls, which collectively accounted for nearly 60% of all EMS-attendances to fall-related incidents. Further exploration of the role EMS clinicians play in identifying and referring patients who sustain repeat falls into alternative pathways is needed.PMID:38588441 | DOI:10.1080/10903127.2024.2338915
