Christopher Nevill helps Hillingdon Hospital

Christopher Nevill fundraising imageChristopher Nevill has partnered with Hillingdon Hospitals Charity to help vulnerable patients who are more prone to falls and fractures.

They aim to raise £2,250 to purchase 500 Yellow Fall Prevention kits together with yellow wrist bands and yellow magnets.

These kits include a special blanket and a pair of slipper socks that are offered to patients who are deemed to be very high risk of falls and unable to recognise their own risk. It is a visual aid to ward staff, multidisciplinary teams and anyone who visits the ward so that extra caution can be applied to the management of these patients. The aim is to reduce the number of falls for these patients – most importantly reducing the risk of falls with harm.

The likelihood and severity of injury resulting from a fall is often related to bone health. People with low bone mineral density are more likely to experience a fracture following a fall. One of the main reasons why people have low bone mineral density is osteoporosis.
