Reactive Falls Service is a responding service to support Bury and HMR locality residents who have fallen and are unable to get up.
Our staff use appropriate lifting equipment to assist them off the floor to a comfortable position.
This service includes clinical support when required. The responding team will carry out a post-fall risk assessment. Following assessment, if the patient needs clinical review, a clinician will review the patient and provide appropriate treatment. BARDOC has onwards referral pathways in place for patients who need referring to the Falls Prevention Team, Rapid Response Team, SDEC etc.
Our team are not only just assisting patients with getting them off the floor, but they are also competent at identifying safeguarding concerns and risks to patients. They are competent to identify acute symptoms and signs and when to contact 999.
The aims of this service are to improve the patient’s journey by decreasing waiting times and unnecessary trips to the hospital, free up the time of ambulance crews & reduce pressures on the A&E departments.
Patient safety is paramount and BARDOC achieves this by ensuring all lifting assistants are mandatory trained and have the necessary skills to perform this role. They have access to clinical support round the clock.
