Helping your patient to get a St John Medical Alarm.
Falls are the single largest cause of injury for New Zealanders and the second most common reason for using ambulance services. Every year in New Zealand, 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 have a fall. For those over the age of 80 the rate increases to 1 in 2. Often the amount of time it takes to get help determines how quickly people recover from a fall.
With more certainty around timely access to help in any emergency, St John Medical Alarms can offer older patients, and those with a physical disability or health condition the confidence they need to maintain independent living.
