About STEADI

STEADI - STopping Elderly Accidents, Deaths, & Injuries

The CDC’s Injury Center created this initiative, expressly for you—healthcare providers who treat older adults who are at risk of falling, or who may have fallen in the past. As a healthcare provider, you are already aware that falls are a serious threat to the health and well-being of your older patients. More than one out of four people 65 and older falls each year, and over 3 million are treated in emergency departments annually for fall injuries. You play an important role in caring for older adults and you can help reduce these devastating injuries. READ MORE
