Today, more than 1,000 people living in a UK care home will fall. Of those, 45% will be completely uninjured but many will be left on the floor for hours whilst the care home waits for a paramedic to lift them back up. This costs the NHS over £50 million a year in inappropriate and unnecessary ambulance callouts when care homes could be lifting their uninjured residents themselves
