The Johns Hopkins Fall Risk Assessment Tool (JHFRAT) was developed as part of an evidence-based fall safety initiative. This risk stratification tool is highly effective when combined with a comprehensive protocol, and fall-prevention products and technologies. The JHFRAT is currently being used in hundreds of hospitals worldwide. Your facility may now purchase a license to use this tool (each facility/hospital within a health system requires a separate license).
The one-time $850 fee includes:
- License to use it in one facility in electronic and/or paper form
- PDF file of the tool
- PDF file of the Johns Hopkins Fall Prevention Guidelines by Risk Category
- PDF files for two publications by Johns Hopkins experts about the effectiveness of the tool
- Unlimited access for your hospital's staff to the online course describing its use.
