June Is National Safety Month

June Is National Safety Month

Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 44. The good news is there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries.

Make a difference – spread the word about ways to reduce the risk of injuries. Encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards.

How can National Safety Month make a difference?

We can all use this time to raise awareness about important safety issues like:

  • Preventing poisonings
  • Driving, biking, and working safely
  • Preventing slips, trips, and falls

Everyone can get involved in reducing the risk of injuries. Together, we can share information about steps people can take to protect themselves and others.

Falls, in particular, are an area of focus for our senior patient population. During the Medicare Annual Wellness, patients receive a Fall Risk Assessment, as well as education about lowering risks for falls at home. Call today to schedule your Medicare Wellness appointment.
