Faults in Elderly Injury Follow-up

Published tisdag 30 januari 2007 kl 11.49

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says Swedish care for the elderly is world class, but there are difficulties in coordinating care in case of injuries.

The new report is part of a pilot project on future risk management within the OECD countries. While Sweden was the subject of the report on the elderly and their safety in the future, other countries are being studied in other risk areas such as earthquakes and flooding.

The report points out that injuries affecting older people almost always involve falls, but says Sweden lacks an automatic response, involving factors such as home help and follow-up investigations into the causes behind the injuries.
