This Residential Aged Care Communiqué May 2023 edition examines a premature death of a resident due to a fall from a wheelchair. The lessons are two-fold. First, all falls are not the same. Second, an open mind and lateral thinking are fundamental when investigating potential contributing factors and solutions. Our commentaries draw on clinical and research experts to address how to balance improving mobility with a wheelchair while mitigating potential harm.
