Urgent Care/Family Medicine/Primary Care
Low mechanism falls among the elderly population are common in urgent care clinics. Elderly patients are particularly vulnerable to more significant morbidity and mortality from low mechanism trauma due to poor compensatory mechanisms related to normal aging. As clinicians, we must quickly identify patients appropriate for outpatient management and those who require a higher level of care and further evaluation in the emergency department (ED).
