    Using a combination of the ISTUMBLE health assessment App and a Mangar lifting cushion will reduce ambulance call outs and avoidable hospital admissions.

    Post fall management initiative reduces avoidable hospital admissions by 75%

    A recent pilot by Norfolk County Council has seen avoidable ambulance call outs to resident falls within care homes in the region reduce by 75% with the introduction of an initiative that combines a health assessment app called ISTUMBLE™ and a Mangar lifting cushion.

     

    Lifting a resident within one hour of a fall is vital to avoid the damaging consequences resulting from lying on the floor for more than an hour while waiting for help (known as a long lie). Traditionally, care homes call the ambulance service for support when lifting fallen residents but over 50% are uninjured and do not need medical help or transferring to hospital.   The ISTUMBLE™ App is used to help carers make good decisions on when to lift and when to call an ambulance.

    The care homes in the Norfolk pilot combined the ISTUMBLE™ training with the use of the specialist lifting cushion to safely move residents quickly and comfortably.  Winncare, who manufacture the lifting cushions and own the ISTUMBLE™ App, have been supplying lifting cushions to the Ambulance Service since 2006.

    Cllr Bill Borrett, Norfolk County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said:

    “Helping people recover their health and their confidence after a fall is really important, and I’m delighted this project has achieved such excellent results. More than that, it’s an example of just how closely linked the care sector and the NHS is, and shows that simple acts of working together, such as via the ISTUMBLE App, can bring real and tangible benefits to the NHS, to care homes and, most importantly, to the residents themselves.

    Case Studies
    Strategies to reduce avoidable hospital admissions are not new. For many years winter pressures have sparked conversations around home care for the elderly because of fears concerning hospital acquired pneumonia and deconditioning.
    A recent pilot by Norfolk County Council has seen avoidable ambulance call outs to resident falls within care homes in the region reduce by 75% with the introduction of an initiative that combines a health assessment app called ISTUMBLE™ and a Mangar lifting cushion.
    Combining benefits of assistive lifting technology and video-based clinical support could return costs savings of up to £3,911 per fall, whilst also safeguarding residents’ lives.
